How to be Spock 101: Emotionlessness By: Emilio

"It's no use crying over spilt milt", the quote most people have heard at least once in their life. The true meaning of it, if you haven't heard it yet, means, according to

it means, "You should not get upset about something bad that has happened that you cannot change" and the same goes for everyday life, for example when you spilt your favourite drink over your new pants or when you look back to your favourite memory and start feeling sad, there is no point of feeling these emotions because no matter what you do now, whats done is done.

Other times, people do stupid things when they are overwhelmed or controlled by their emotions or have

Sub Question #1: Can We Control Instincts?


According to, instinct means a natural impulse or tendancy and emotions are more of and impulse because if you were to see somebody special to you die, you would imediatly be sad with no thinking, so If we can control our instincts, that would be the first step in the right direction, and it is possible and is known as self control because in instances like when you are usualy a chatterbox or very loud, it's because you have always been like that, so you develop into that category. However it is possible to tame these instincts that we learned by using self control so now we now it is possible to control emotions.

Sub Question #2: What Triggers Emotion?


If you think that self control is not going to be helpful (lack of it, too much temptation to give in), then why not just avoid what triggers emotions? Each emotional trigger varies from person to person, depending on how they behave, and if you were to find out your emotional triggers, you would be able to avoid them. However if you seem to be a very easily “triggered” person, you should be highlighting the ones that are important and deal with the rest with self control since it's just a minor trigger and you will be able to deal with it.

Sub Question #3: What are Emotions?

If you can learn to understand what and emotion is, it will help you discover your emotional triggers and also help you figure out how to control them instead of just holding them in. According to Very Well, emotions are "An emotion is a complex psychological state that involves three distinct components: a subjective experience, a physiological response, and a behavioralor expressive response."

“ It's no use crying over spilt milk”... or at least thats what they used to say. Now that you have gained information about being emotionless by me answering these 3 sub questions to answer my main question, now you won’t hear people saying anything about emotions because you are always neutral in all situations and won’t do stupid things that you would regret later on in life because of a temper tantrum.
