People are different and react differently in certain situations, when we know or not know how to keep our calm. Usually i am a very calm person who knows how to maintain composure, even in very sensitive situations, but sometimes when i am tired or bored, and someone wants to make me angry with all the interest i, lose my temper, but i don t fight, but i will keep silence. Get angry quickly? Can you control your nerves or let you easily irritated?

No sorry. I have a very short fuse and get irritated quickly. I will walk away, depending on what made me loose my temper. TATA.

Maybe both of us should try and learn to control our anger. Hopefully it will go better one day. TATA.

Hi, Ice! I could count on one hand the number of times I've been angry in my entire life! I'm just not an angry person.

Maybe part of the reason I don't get angry is because I'm not very interested in competition, except with myself!

Experts say that people who get angry and screaming, arguing, give out what they think, live longer, and those who keep calm, keep inside what they think, just shut up, die soon, so I want to live longer, so i get angry, I say what I think, certainly me, then I calm down.

It might be correct. But what if you don't allow yourself to be angry? Try to keep yourself calm. And if you do get angry then it depends on how you express your anger. One can shout at himself by looking at mirror when angry, take deep breath, etc. That's how I manage to control my anger.

It depends on the situation. I can managed to control my temper when I am in the crowd or in the office because I always take priority on good manners, but when certain issues really touch my pride and ego sometimes I would flare up and stormed out. My family already used to my outburst but not my friends, so I will control my temper if I am caught arguing with them, I will not lose my composure.

I used to get angry right away. But somehow, I was able to control it. Whenever there are times that I already feel I am losing my temper, I take a deep breath. I will then think that there is no point in bursting out and shouting considering that it will just make the situation worst.

No, it takes a lot to get me angry usually. But when I get angry, watch out!

I have never been one to anger easily or get irritated quickly. I have always been good about keeping my temper in control. Usually things have to mount to the breaking point and then I snap. It doesn't even have to be a big issue. The smallest thing on top of too many other things that were left unsaid reach their point of no return. After i have unleashed any pent up anger and frustration, it is usually quickly forgotten. I move on and try not to look back at regrets.

I tend to get irritated easily but not get angry. But if they are already hitting below the belt and doesn't know their mistakes or even their limits, that's where I'll start to get angry. Just like you, I know how to calm my self and smile about it afterwards. Though there are instances which really gets on my nerves that I speak out and tell them that "it is not funny anymore" or something like that and keep quiet afterwards. Its a way to let them know that "enough is enough". :D

I used to be a bad-tempered and sensitive person who got irritated easily and was likely to be affected by surroundings. The score to a test, for instance, influenced my mood greatly. I could be silent and angry for a whole day, which made the atmosphere around me rather tense. But after i began to work, i've been slowly changing myself as i realised that a hot temper does the least good to me. More seriously, i may offend others unconsciously, which is absolutely something that is supposed to be avoided.

I do get irritated quickly sometimes however i manage to control my anger and stop my self from blowing up. There have been a few times where certain people have got me ticking and i blew up with anger, so yea... But the way i usually manage it is by counting to 10 inside my head.. if it really annoys me i count to 100=p it works sometimes if i actually start counting hehe

well i can manage my temper i don't get angry that much cause i love to laugh maybe listening to music or writing could control your anger management express your self in that manner

Hi icemile.. Getting angry to individuals or something is part of our human nature. Though, its negative feeling but someway, somehow its an expression of oneself. Anger does not always mean hatred, it could just be a means of coping up situations. For me, I'm slow to be anger cause self respect is being there. I'm a calm person that is why I'm happy. There are some people that rude when getting mad... Maybe they are out of control but looked at the result... They put into prison that result to ruin their lives. See? how anger affects oneself..

anger management is difficult especially if you are very emotional. emotions work separately with the mind because expressions produced by emotions are immediate while thoughts produced by the brain are processed before blurted out. there are people who are very good in controlling their emotions. moderating emotions come as habit brought about by either the way you are raised by your parents, your school or work environment, your mood, or simply by your outlook in life. when your mind works in sync with your emotions, this means that you are someone who is composed. this may be a good or bad thing. when is it bad? well, if you hide emotions too well, you could be deceiving and untrue half of the time. most politicians are good at masking emotions and that is why i hate most of them. as for me, i tend to let my emotions out in different ways. yes, i lose my temper. when i know i'm about to lose my temper, i walk out and breathe to myself that shouting at everybody would not do me good. whenever this happens, people around me see that i'm in a bad mood and they are sensitive enough to stay away from me. of course i only get angry at extreme situations. simple things don't really affect me. there are some people who have spoonful amount of patience and i don't really like dealing with them. my experience with my mom, who nags and annoys me most of the time, bagged me a good amount of patience and understanding.

I lost my temper easily based on a situation, Of course if someone do things that i don't like it starts to piss me off, but I am not that kind of person that easily loses temper with just a little things. And I will only get angry if necessary.

I'm easily get irritated most of the times, i don't want questions to be asked thrice cause i don't want to re irritate the same explanations again and again. And if i'm in that situation I just keep my silence or walk out to avoid saying things I might regret.
