If i get really mad I talk to myself and try to calm down. I don't throw stuff but I vent by talking. I can't keep quiet. I've tried believe me I've tried but it just doesn't work. I find that if I just talk it out to myself first I'm cool and collected when I go to talk to whoever is causing the problem. It takes a lot to make me mad but once I'm mad oh boy I'm mad.

hi there. thank for the response. i understand about slow burner. i am too but once i reach my limit, i can't be as mousy and quiet. i really try to convey how i feel but of course not throwing a tantrum. i just get more straightforward... LOL

It really depends where I am at. Like if I am at home with family I proably would through a tantrum, but if I am some other place beside home around friends/unknown people I will just keep my mouth shut. It also depends on my mood that day

Before when i got mad or angry i threw a tantrum to people. i spoke loudly and i was very excited. I knew it was not right and not helpful, but i can't control myself. Now maybe i'm getting older i learnet how to control myself. So when i get mad with something, i chose to be quiet, but i still open my mind and try to get explaination. it can help me to keep good relationship with people around me. especially help me to keep a good work relationships with my collegues. it's very important to me. Now my boss and other collegues have very good impression with me. i really enjoy the happy work atmosphere.

I usually just keep quite. If it is someone I don't know who makes me mad, I probably won't dare fight back that easily as you never know what the people truly is. I mean if he is with the mafia then you will be in serious troubles. If it is someone I do know, I would have to ask myself am I prepared to turn a dark face on them not only for this particular moment but for the rest of my life. I mean it would be very strange if I fight back at them so that they just walk away and later on I approach them again.
