This brain’s fight or flight instinct runs the show. It fires continuously, wasting all kinds of energy unnecessarily. It also responds to environmental stimuli inappropriately. For example, what would be considered a minor irritation to most brains may enrage this brain, and an upsetting situation, such as a hurtful comment from a loved one, may bring a few tears to some brains, but not this one. To this brain it brings hours of heaving and sobbing as if someone just died!
Things are not all bad, however. This brain is intelligent and creative, always doing well in academia and the visual arts. This brain also has a very dry sense of humor. Was that a joke? I don’t know; you tell me. Ha! Ha!
One of the best characteristics of this brain is its empathy. This brain has been told countless times that the human it controls is a great listener, has a calm, soothing voice, and would make an excellent counselor.
This brain does tend to focus on the negative side of things A LOT, and as a result suffers quite a bit. Depression and anxiety are produced continually by this brain except for a short time each spring when its neurotransmitters go into overdrive and things get a little hypomanic all up in there. Although the theory has never been tested, it is suspected that this brain may do better in a climate that is warm year-round.
Overall, this middle-aged brain is fair, and even given its limitations with perspective and emotional control, it does function pretty well for the most part if paired with a strong, understanding, and loving family and friends unit. Daily medication is required, however, absolutely no alcohol or recreational drug use is allowed as this brain is in recovery.
BUT WAIT! Before you consider choosing this brain read on…
My biggest complaint about this brain is that it has anywhere from five to eight migraines per month. The pain this inflicts is excruciating and cannot be taken lightly. Bottom line is that unless you are a masochist, you probably do not want this brain!
