Would you try and feel a certain way? Would you shut out that which makes you feel powerless? Would you dwell on emotions that seem familiar? Would you tell yourself to be happy? Would you tell yourself you ought to feel bad? Would you rationalize? Would you guilt-trip?
Would you try and be a certain way? Would you be rational, logical, dignified? Would you be impulsive, audacious, dynamic? Would you be steady, focused and determined? Would you be amicable, friendly and approacheable?
