Are you pensive?

very much so... it is sort of my curse.

Maggie, 22
Sandwich
, IL   USA

During my teens, I thought both "pensive" and "anguished" were poetic conditions. These days I think, sometimes I brood, but I'm very rarely pensive.

Jill, 60

I'll have to think about that a while.

penĚsive (pnsv) adj. Deeply, often wistfully or dreamily thoughtful. Suggestive or expressive of melancholy thoughtfulness Possibly.

Alias Irrelevante

I'll have to think about that.

Jane, 62

Haven't been pensive for years. Must be a time crunch thing.

Felicia, 35

No, I am more of a realist.

Melodi, 19
Gahanna

Very much so, almost all the time.

If you're asking if I engage in extensive navel-gazing, then no. I'm much too shallow for that, unfortunately.

You'll have to let me mull that one over.

Eric, 19

Yeah, that word could be applied to me with no problem. I tend to over-think and excessively contemplate the effects of my actions instead of just acting on my best judgment. That sort of relates back to the previous days question about being a leader or follower. My lust for dreaming big is why I try to avoid the leadership position.

Aaron, 22
VA  USA

I'm fairly pensive, yes, but not quite to the point of brooding.

Johanna, 18
OK  USA

Well, I do like to use pens...at least as opposed to pencils...so I suppose I am Pen-sive

Hmmmm...? Ah, yes...

Jaden, 21
Brampton, Ontario  CANADA

No, I usually don't think enough. I tend to be impulsive.

Laura, 36
Lowell
, MA   USA

If you mean do I think about what I'm about to do before I do it, I'll have to answer no - not often enough. I'm improving I think, but too often I say and do things which I later regret.

Reba, 50+

, MD   USA

Not anymore. I took a class to get over that. Thinking too much is bad!

Celeste, 30

yeah

Patty

Yes, I am. I hope this info doesnt leak out.
