    I couldn't remember when the last time I was angry at someone/something.
    So, I guess at most once per year.

    I get angry/lose my temper quite a bit, esp. if I think someone is saying something stupid. I tend to try and "call them out" rather than yell, though.

    I believe being "angry" about the state of the world, about certain things in your life, etc. is normal. That said, I think it's clear that screaming, yelling, hollering etc. are characteristics of a character flaw, usually by people who want others to get as upset as them. They are signs of weakness I think and a lot of people ignore those who are angry or mad all the time.

    I guess I would think it would be better to be concered about issues, rather than angry about them.

    limit of 5 times a day?

    hmmm---maybe its frustration instead of anger though

    What is your definition of angry?

    Actually, it depends. If I'm using Linux, I get angry a few times per session. Windows, I get angry a lot. Mac? I want to slowly torture Steve Jobs to death.

    losing temper.

    e.g. exaggerated example:

    For me, I can differentiate it from just being annoyed by the fact that it manifests physically. When I'm angry, my hands start shaking, I get hot, my heart rate goes up, and my brain disengages.

    It only happens to me about once a year.

    Using Russ's definition, I get angry maybe once a year, if that. Annoyed, frustrated, aggrevated - a lot more often!

    I get annoyed at things/people very quickly.

    But ANGRY, can't recall ever getting ANGRY at someone or something before.

    Had you said annoyed: probably every few hours (or every #of posts I read). But I stop being annoyed about as fast as I am annoyed. Most of the time I just say a string of curse words in my head (or out loud) and then continue what I'm doing. Usually I say 'god dammit' or 'what the f****??......'

    No one onboard knows that until you say that.

    This
    shows your anger.

    That would be frustration if we use the OP's definition of anger.

    Sometimes I also get really angry, and sad, then I write manythings into a text file about those who angered me. Sometimes I make up a paper toy imagining it is the guy to then hit it satisfactorily with a pencil.

    Depends on how you define anger.

    Anger to me equals one step away from GBH.
