Yup. It's a bit like it says in "Ask and it is Given" - you can't just leap from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. If you're in quite a good mood and you meet someone effusively joyful, they lift you up. But if you're grumpy and you meet someone who's effusively joyful, it's just annoying - you can't make that transition in one leap.
I think I saw a post on these forums once that someone had created a mood transition mix-tape - starting from woeful music and transitioning song by song to joyous music.
BTW, why on earth is this post in the "Fun & Recreation" forum?
