Having a degree of flexibility wrt controlling the intensity of the particular emotion
Dependent upon the emotion itself and the psychological make up of the individual

Seriously? Do you really think that emotions and degree of flexibility depend on the psychological makeup of the individual? How can this be? I thought God was responsible for everything that happens. I'm assuming that intensity of emotion depends on the psychological make up of the individual, but that's a lot like assuming 1 = 1.

Of course it depends upon the psychological make up of the individual absolutely it does
You seriously do not think that everyone has the same degree of self control now do you

If someone has less self-control than average, he's going to be depending on the kindness of strangers. If somebody has more self-control than average, it's not up to me to get him what he really wants, but has too much self-control to go after.

Someone with a low degree of self control may not want the kindness of strangers while someone with a high degree of self control may be able to get what they want without depending up on someone else. But it all depends on what form the self control actually takes. The devil is in the detail. Someone who has a high degree of self control in one area may have a low degree of self control in another. No one is entirely in control all of the time
