i admit i have a short patience, so i can be easily irritated with a person especially when that person really do something that piss me off. but as much as possible I'm trying to overcome that attitude because i know its not good flare-up easily. how about you? do you have a long temper? or do you also flare-up easily?

I think I have the shortest temper. I just get irritated just like you. It's really hard for me to control me temper if someone does the thing that I don't really like. This is the really bad part of me. But I can easily oversome my anger as well. I think this is the another good part of me. I don't take those things in my mind for long time. I think this is better. Usually people who don't get angry easily keep those things in mind for long time that makes them angry.

yeah, the best option to do for us is to try to take things lightly so as not to be irritated easily.

It really depends on what the subject is for me to get angry, for things im passionate about I get very angry easily but other things im very relaxed and laid back about. For example things like freedom of speech are great and when a government is arrogant enough to think they can take that away I get very angry about it and thats purely because I love freedom of speech. The same thing applies when someone asks a question where a small amount of research would have yielded an answer for, its not that I dont like answering them but I get angry they are so lazy as they think someone is going to do it all for them. Note: I don't mean your question, that was just an example.

With a sweet face like that? No way! Ok, maybe! lol. I'm not very patient either, just ask my partner or kids! lol. I have to say that it is one area I have managed to improve in though, and even my partners ears aren't ringing so much these days!

Oh God!!! I get angry very easily. But it takes a long time to test my patience, but when I flare up, it's a fire. And I don't spare anybody at that moment. Haha...! Yes, it's not good. But you must be in control and know when to use anger. Anger must be just a tool and must be used in the right place at the right time. It must be used with awareness under discretion. But, uncontrolled anger is not good.

As same as you,I am a short patience,espicially insulted by others,it is easy for me to anger with others.When I was young,I don't know how to communicate with others,including my family members and my friends,I found my friendless.In recent years,I adjusted my temper gradually,and tried to understand others' thinking.Now,I have a quiet tempper,I am seldom anger with others.You can try my idea.

I flare up so easily before but now I was able to manage it. I got into a certain program that really helped me how to deal with it. Now, before I say anything nasty or not necessary, I get in touch with what I feel. Am I getting better with it or will it make me any better or will it make a situation any better? No! I just smile and give a deep breath! I tell the person I am very irritated or angry with that I don't feel comfortable with the situation. I will just be honest that I feel angry but I need not burst out. Now, it has helped my relationships and even my relationships at work better. I am comfortable with people I deal with even if it pisses me off.

I used to be like that few years back. I think now I have calmed down considerably and do not react much if that does not reuqire that much of an attention. I think there is no point to get angry over trafiic jams,rude bosses,prices of each commodities shooting up,on govt for it's anti-poor policy.

I do not get angry very fast.But if i do I become violent.I break and throw things and I do not look what is it I am breaking or on whom I am throwing things. I have broken flowervases, TV, mobile phones, glasses, paper weights to name a few. If I need to change something about myself I would like to change this temper of mine.

Yeah sometimes I get angry easily. I know I get angry very easily when im around my parents. There is some stuff that they do that just really annoy me. But when im around other people I dont get angry as often for some reason. I guess its because I want everyone to like me lol. But I really only get angry around my parents I mean you would have to do something pretty bad to piss me off.
