120 Examples of State Of Mind

Mood

A mood is a persistent emotion that influences your thoughts, behavior and feeling for a sustained period of time. These typically shift over the course of a day and can last minutes to hours.

Emotional State

Emotions are states of mind that color all thoughts. These change in response to events and aren't sustained like a mood.

Attention State

How you focus your awareness and allocate your cognitive resources. For example, multitasking where you try to focus on many things simultaneously.

Outlook

Mental outlook is your general attitude towards things at a point in time. This shapes your approach to social interactions, problem-solving and decision making. For example, an optimistic outlook whereby you focus on the potential and possibilities in things.

Motivational States

Your motivation at a point in time. This shapes how much mental energy you feel and how you direct this energy.

Social State of Mind

Your general attitude towards other people at a point in time. For example, a situation where you feel dependent on others or where you feel that you want independence from them.

Self-Perception

How you are feeling about yourself and how you are treating yourself at a point in time. This can shift over the course of a day as part of your overall state of mind. However, self-perception may also be quite stable in some people.

Summary

State of mind is the way you are thinking and feeling at a point in time. This changes throughout a day but can be relatively stable for minutes or perhaps hours. The many dimensions of state of mind allow you to shift into different modes to handle different situations and experience different ways of thinking.
