Main Question or Discussion Point

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.

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.

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****??......'

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.

In terms of getting angry to the point when I'm shaking (I suppose this is my adrenaline rushing), that happens probably 1-5 times a year.

If you laughed, I am happy too, true!

Because, if you become sad, I will get all worst results. :biggrin:

See you, I have got to go. :wink:
