    What are your experiences with melancholy? How would you define melancholy? What do you do when you're feeling melancholy? Do you think that melancholy is a good thing?



    Are you naturally a melancholy person, and if so, how well does this description fit you?

    Sorry for asking so many questions. I'd be interested to hear your views.

    Galen's comedies, no I'm not wholey melancholy. In Galen's theory melancholy was a part of a persons nature or attitude, much like the MBTI. It was thought to come from having a higher concentration of black bile then the other fluids in your body.

    the other fluids were:

    Phlegm which represented lethargy or boredom

    Blood which represented happines or excitment

    Yellow Bile which represented anger

    having a high amount of any of these liquids in your body was said to have changed your disposition to the appropriate emotion.

    I gues i'm kinda melancholy now, heh i'm also kinda lethargic what do you know.

    I wouldn't call it a bad thing no, maybe even neccesary at times.
