    I'm actually a very creative person, or try to be at least, and while emotions can be a bit tasking sometimes, I need them. Emotions are the fuel to a huge amount of the creative process, whether it's writing a depressing death scene, or composing a lovely little funky beat.
    And since eighty-five percent of what I want to do in this world before I leave it is, in some way or another, art. . . I'd prefer to keep my emotions.
    Besides, I'm extremely well practiced in controling myself.

    As a side thought though, if you were completely emotionless you wouldn't be able to love, yes, but so too would any comradery be impossible. In other words, you wouldn't even be able to have friends that you cared for, or worried about. You wouldn't be alone per say, but you would never again feel that warmth of knowing that somebody else is there with you, beside you all the way.

    Emotions can be a pain, I completely agree with that.
    But I think if you were living without ever feeling life, then, you really wouldn't be.

    While emotions can sometimes hinder us, they also motivate and stimulate us in many positive ways. I'd rather they be amplified than lose them all.

    I think I'll pick the 2nd option (stronger emotions), because it clearly fits my personality already. If I'm emotionless, that would be a big dilemma because I can't become the happiest person, ever.

    I'd rather have stronger emotions.

    Who would willingly lose their feelings of love, happiness and joy? No more of those moments when you just want to smile all day long. No feelings of attachment to that girl with you. It just seems a bit bland, to be emotionless.

      After thinking about this for a while, I decided that I would prefer not to have emotions. I'd rather be numb than to deal with that. I've spent years learning to master my emotions- and hide what I can't control. Why not accept an opportunity to perfect it?
      Besides, being emotionless would make life in general easier. Less fulfilling, yes, but you wouldn't have to deal with so many things that you normally do!
      I can't think of a good signature.

      I'd much rather cry a river (literally) and still be able to laugh then not be able to do either. Living life without emotion seems pretty damn pointless. You're a robot.

      I try to keep my emotions in, so I say that I'm emotionless, but I express certain emotions if they're strong enough.

        I desire to discover and experience different emotional events and such, so I will go with 2.
        Will work on a better signature when I don't feel lazy.

        If you would have asked me this a few years ago, I would have chosen emotionless, but I've found pretty recently that my life has taken a dramatic turn for the better, so now its a bit more difficult to choose. I have more good moments than bad, so that's something that's making me want to choose emotional. But I also dread bad moments, and when bad things happen to me, they're pretty hard to cope with since they aren't just simple things that I find most people experience. I think I've been through a lot of hardships for my age - more than most - and because of that, I'm hesitant to choose emotional since dealing with those with pretty normal emotions has been hard enough as it is. I think I'll go with emotional. My outlook on life has improved dramatically, and I want to experience the happy moments that are to come to the fullest extent.

        I'd like to say I'd go for the neutral, but not being happy ever again sounds so... sad. You wouldn't get any enjoyment out of life so what would the point even be? Even if extremes meant that lows were really, really tough... at least the highs would be enough to stick around for. I know I'd just become listless and give up if nothing in life could bring me actual joy of any kind. So I'd rather have the stronger feelings.

          People may find it strange but I'd go with emotional. I mean, what is life without both joy and pain?
          Our lives revolve around our feelings which make everything better, livelier. Being emotional and
          optimistic can bring joy to everyone! A bright smile on the face is contagious and soon everyone
          would be beaming. Let's work hard to bring happiness to the people around us instead of sitting
          around without any feeling! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

            I'd go with thefallendetective. I would choose to be more emotional. Life would be so boring without any emotions!

            I want my emotions. They are a part of who I am! I am already pretty emotional so a little more wont hurt. Someone who is emotionless is more or less like a robot and I don't want to be like that.

            I am already an overemotional wreck so I don't see how it could get worse :D I'd choose the second option, thusly.

            Maybe a trial like that could be cool?"

              I've experienced both sides of the spectrum. I think I was more happy being "content" which was pretty similar to having no emotions, just calm, relaxed and stress-free. Sometimes things got a little boring, but sooner or later I realized that I was pretty grateful for being just content.
              This is my game!

                Emotional. To lose happiness, for me, just isn't worth losing sadness/anger.

                Emotions is a huge part of being human. A human without emotions simply ceases to be a human altogether. We would simply become empty husks of a living organism. Without emotions, we would lose just about everything no matter how much you have, including the ability to love - the most important emotion of all that makes the world go round. That is what I think, therefore emotions I shall choose, even if its comes with all the pain and suffering of sadness and anger.

                    I want my emotions gone. It'll likely be the only thing that can stop me from over-thinking things & putting my mind at ease. If that's the case, my so-called "Humanity" is but a small price to pay, especially if it gets rid of my desperate cravings for sex.

                    Hell, I started disliking being a human once I realized that it isn't any better no matter what gender you are.

                      Having no emotions means never having the ability to love. Emotional.
