 PASSIONATELY IMPULSIVE / DISPASSIONATE

I know that some people carefully, rationally weigh alternatives when they come to a fork in the road. Iím typically not like that. Often my needs seem urgent and my actions are guided by powerful feelings--fear, anger, jealousy, love, lust, frustration, intuition, sympathy, courage, possessiveness, insecurity, sociability, hostility, sorrow, etc. (Note: Rather than acting in goal-oriented, measured fashion, this personís actions are often based on primitive urges or childish reactions.  In contrast, a dispassionate person can be stoically indifferent to pleasure or pain, and often unmoved by joy or grief. Decisions are made after careful deliberation, free from passion, unaffected by emotions. The differences in these people can be traced to differences in brain biochemistry.)
