I have a bad temper, and I think I could easily fail the test of self control in this area! But I consider myself disciplined, I dont know if that is a positive in the area of self control

I am very moody. A lot of times, I try to lift my moods and not show it to others. HOwever, there are times that I just decide and heck! here is my crankiness so I let myself go. I believe that most people are always in control and are very capable of controlling those moods and tempers but controlling them could be stressful to and it would feel more liberating to just let go and let off steam. Well, human as we are, I consider it normal. I even consider it abnormal not to loose ones temper once in a while.

i am a very impatient person and i flare up most of the time. during my yougher years, i was ill tempered u ntil i learned to manage my temper. do not control it because if you do , you are only subduing it or just tucking it away. accept and understand who you are and you will know how to manage it since it is already there and if you are aware of it then it is good that you know how and when you are going to flare up.

I too have an uncontrollable emotion many times. And after being temperamental, I regret doing it. It's one area of my life I need so much improvement!

[i]Hi academic, I have a bad temper also and I don't like to control it when I am really mad at the person, I want to express what I feel right there and then...But, when it is nothing against anyone, I will always try not to show to it people, I will just keep it by myself![/i]

Yes. I control myself and my actions. I used to be controlled by others but I had to put a stop to that because it made me feel very unhappy and frustrated with myself.
