ye it would be nice to always be happy and just spend time having fun and socialising but it would be sad if everyone lost their personalities

Ignorance is bliss, after all.  However, it ceases to be bliss once you wake up.

i suppose that no individuality would mean much less arguing and dispute, but it would also be quite boring...

The Evils of Free Will, as they're called.  However, sometimes things are better with a little pain and unpleasantness.  
What if a giant meteor smashed into the Earth and reduced the population by half?  All the pretties wouldn't be able to cope with it, and therefore everything would fall apart.  Despite the specials and possibly smokeys trying to hold it together.

The pretties tend to be very calm though so maybe the specials could keep them in order...

Hmm, calm as they are, they can probably still panic, or at least create mass hysteria.

the adrenaline caused by a disaster like that would probably make all the prettys wake up as a sort of mini mind rain
speaking of mind rain there's a really interesting essay in the book about individuality and comformity
as for emotions and whatnot
I'm incredibly calm
if something bothers me I will usualy ignore it for the sake of peace (I mean in the quiet sence)
I hate yelling
it's the difference between an argument and a debate for me
I love debates getting other peoples opinoins of things helps me to understand them wich helps me to not get angery at people
arguments are terrible cuz no one wins
you may not come out of a debate with an answer but at least you gain something.

It might depend on how long the pretties in question have been pretties.  As time goes on, they become less useless. 

I'm not really an angry person, but I'm not calm in the way you're calm, JimmyLost.

that's a clever idea jimmy.... i suppose, supprviolet, then that the later pretties would react more strongly to a disaster
i don't get angry easily but if i do get angry then i can get really furious

I can make myself pretty-minded sometimes,this is the best points in my life. A lot when I'm with my boyfriend I am, I feel beautiful and just forget about my worries. When I get too stressed I try to switch into being pretty-minded, when it works, everything is ok :)
