Hello to all,

Am I using "ebb and flow" correctly in this sentence? :

I know all the ebbs and flows of her personality, so I know how to make her happy.

If ebb and flow is not correct here, what can I use to suggest I know all the ins and outs and all details of her personality?

Also can I use ebb and flow in plural ebbs and flows?

    "Ebbs and flows" suggests that her personality changes a lot, and "ups and downs" suggests mood swings. Is this what you wish to imply?
    Thanks. I want to talk about the details of her personality. When you know the details of a person's character it is easier for you to please them.

    Would ebb and flow work for that situation?

    Context is everything in English. What you’ve already been told is fine if you don’t have a real context.
