he needs to see a doctor, he obviously has angry and he needs to learn how to control his anger, there are many reasons for anger, the doctor will determine his, I am a counselor, so I know you just can't say oh his reason is this or that, without talking to him taking his case his and getting to the bottom of it, there are many reasons why a person could be angry not everyone will be angry for the same reasons, some reasons are insecurity physical reasons brain tumors fear frustration lack of joy in ones life depression anxiety stress worry chemical or hormonal imbalance lack of sleep family issues work issue

you can try to get him to see a doctor, but if he doesn't go don't beat yourself up over it.

i think anger is a sign of showing fear or insecurities.Anger is an emotional state that may range from minor irritation to intense rage. Some view anger as part of the fight or flight brain response to the perceived threat of pain

This guy clearly is lacking some anger management skills and should get help for it. I'm not sure how you would go about bringing it up to him without him freaking out, but there are anger management classes available.

hi ann .. this people need to be left alone for some time to relax, we should not react with our own statements and make them angry some more .. my husband is only similar in the part where his opinion is the last word .. i actually have given up in wanting anything my way at all ... the best way to reach to them and for them to agree with your reasons is .. choose the right time, you must discuss many inteligent matters with them which does not relate to the topic you want ... once they start to respond to your discussion ... only then you start your topic ... it may not be on the same day it will sometimes be 3 days but it can only be achieved once they find comfort in discussing matters with you ... my best "weapon" is discussion on "american politics" "world financial crisis" and "religion" this actually calms my husband, and he finds me to be more intelligent ... only then i open my topic ... i have achieved some ways cheers

if i am going to look at Dr. House then i can say that some person gets angry because of the pain they feel. my friends dad was a very jokky person but when he was in pain because of cancer he becomes to be grumpy and grouchy and moody. i think anger is more on dealing with pain. maybe emotionally, physically or broken hearted. when we are free from pain we are really in a good and nice mood.

THERAPY! Therapy is definitely needed here! Yes, this man has some very deep issues. A bad temper like that is a sign of depression, believe it or not! Apparently, there is something troubling him deeply, even if he is not consciously aware of it. It may be something that stems from his early childhood, forgotten by his conscious mind but definitely alive and well in his subconscious mind. People like this don't generally sit down by themselves and try to find the reason for their temper or their need to have everything go their way. A good therapist is the only way he's ever going to be able to deal with these issues. I hope this is not someone in your immediate family, annjilena! But, if it is, try to get him into therapy. It won't be easy because temper is also a sign of denial of the real problem.
