    How often (if ever) do you cry?
    I don't cry ever really. Maybe once a year, or maybe twice if it's a particularly stressful year. I usually cry at the dumbest things when it happens, but it will be a culmination of a lot of things. I feel like I want to cry a lot though.

    What compels you to cry?
    Stress, and not meeting the pretty high internal standards I set for myself.

    Do you ever cry in front of other people?

    What would you think if someone cried in front of you?
    As my hero Abby Lee Miller says, save your tears for your pillow in your room. I have a hard time empathizing with people who publicly display emotions but I try to comfort them, even though I'm not very good at it.
    I relate to this so much. I might be your ghost of xmas future because this was me until recently. Then I had a bit of an emotional explosion a couple months ago caused by a combination of stress and vulnerability. It totally broke me, and I cried every single day for a month. It was scary. I had to take time off of work (which you know feels horrible for us 3s). Ultimately, it's a good thing and has led to a lot of healing of old wounds. However, I don't recommend it if you can avoid it!

    I cry a few times a year, but it's not especially commonplace.
    Task-related frustration "gets" to me easily, and I will tear up over academic, work, or project-related failures.
    Philosophical quandaries/Fi whitenoise can also do it. It's difficult for others to "make" me cry--if they have, it was a deep cut, and for good reason. Coated with Teflon in that regard. XD
    Okay with teary people. I try to remain calm, nonjudgemental, and humane; offering a listening ear.

    How often (if ever) do you cry?

    Rarely. I can't recall the last time I cried.

    What compels you to cry?

    When I feel powerless. Usually when I have a big problem it's completely unacceptable and I do my best to solve it as soon as possible, but when something is out of my control I just feel completely desperate and weak, so that's probably the reason. And I don't like to talk to others, even close friends, about my problems so I tend to completely repress my negative emotions to the point that it's very hard to tell, even for people who know me very well, when I'm sad or depressed. I always seem happy even when I'm totally depressed. And of course at some point I just explode.

    And I don't think I ever cried tears of joy but, on very rare occasions (only happened, like, 3 or 4 times in my life), when faced with an outstandingly beautiful AND dramatic work of art that I could deeply relate to (either a novel, a song, or a movie) it brought tears to my eyes.

    Do you ever cry in front of other people?

    No, I usually hate to display my negative emotions in front of other people.

    What would you think if someone cried in front of you?

    Oh boy, that's so annoying, it depends on the context but generally I just don't know what the heck to do or say in these kinds of situations.
