strange this very timely..I've just had a long struggle with an employment officer who had some power over me and his behaviour seem grumpy...reactive..and confrontational...basically had to sack him because he was getting over the top and making a big dramatic point over everything he did'nt like..wasting time and generally making your average sensitive person a bit wound up..(me)

I had to look first at well this is just how he is to everybody...but then it was clear his judgement was bad as a result and the flow of things was getting seriously affected.

I would have said he was depressed but in the kind of way that had being long standing and had vented itself through his work and eventually written into stable behaviours that he could get away with, and sometimes use effectively to battle for people who needed work with disabilites.

What I was seeing was a mature man who had these traits..but I had to sack him..he was creating more problems than he was doing good..(for me)...

In the end you can look at yourself from all sorts of angles..chemical..behavioural etc etc but what you are dealing with here is the crystallized version of perhaps a long standing mood disorder that has'nt ruined your life..but has become written in you enough to warrant constant comment from your environment.

At the end of the day the question is...would you like this attention to stop..can you handle change at this stage in your life...or is it the right time..also certain of these traits (being strong minded) are not mood disorders....you have to know how to seperate that...

If it ain't broke don't fix it..not everybody has beautiful demeanor, thats not a mental illness that I know of..its more of a trait concerning what regions of your brain (hemispheres) light up more on average and become more neuron heavy and prone to getting re-used by stimuli...

Amatuer Neurology anyone ?
