Do you explode?

When something a person irritates you for some reason, are you the type of person that confronts people right away or you tend to build up those irritating moments then explodes at the end? well I admit, I'm the latter type. My limit break is very hard to reach. I'm the quiet type of person who will just allow little misunderstanding to pass by. Weighing my opponent carefully and allowing them to feel that they are on the winning side. Planning on how to make a perfect opening. Building the pressure inside like a dormant volcano then once the pressure build-up is so strong, will explode without warning. Well this seldom happens, but it did. I seldom get mad but when I do, I am really mad. Have a good day

I seldom explode but when i do it's really intense and sometimes i cry out of anger! Just like you, i would let minor one to just pass by. But when those minor ones keeps on coming from the same person, i guess i have to talk to her about it, of course with some heavy tone.

I am nowhere near the blow up person I used to be. I used to be loud mouthed and brazen but the older I get and hopefully the more mature I get, I tend to try and let things work themselves out. If they do not work out over time I will then try to calmly work with the person and talk it out.

My dear Neilchua, I share similar characteristics with you. I am the quiet type that suppress my emotion and then gather them like clusters of bombs and then get explodes on my attackers.

But after the explosion, don't you feel great? I mean, at last, the person you're mad at was silenced and stunned and hopefully will never bother you again.

To be honest, i do not like interacting with people who make a hill out of a mole, because they just like arguing over things and there is no end to it. And this kind of an attitude makes me want to go for "Anger management classes!!" usually i mantain my cool, but i cannot help it if somebody is bound to drive me up the wall.

I admit I'm slow when it comes to confronting people. I hate confrontations. I tend to mull over things before actually talking to the person involved and most of the times, I end up forgetting about the whole thing. Especially once I've spoken about it to someone else. my anger easily fizzles, and I end up trying to understand this person and the situation. Sometimes it does feel good to just flare up and take it out on the person once in a while. I would certainly like to have a go. But I hope not in the office where it might cost me my job! :-)

I am one of those people who do not say anything right away when things start to bother me. I let it build up and build up to the point where I can't take it anymore and I blow up. It is usually a bunch of little things that in themselves don't matter so much, but when you pile all of them together all those little things add up to what seems like a big thing. The last thing that sets me off is not usually all that big of a thing either.

Usually, it takes a lot for me to explode. I don't usually snap very quickly, although there might be one or two exceptions. I much prefer remaining calm and trying to talk through the misunderstanding calmly. I find that it's better and easier to use this method, in my opinion. I tend not to explode very often.

we are just the same actually. i am just silent person. sometimes it will takes many years before i explode. but i don't usually want to get angry. but sometimes a person will just try to push you to your limits and will test up to when you can hold on to your patience.

I am also the type of person who accumulates a lot inside before erupting,but I usually try to calm down and chill out before it happens because I am aware that anger is harmful for the body and the stress accumulated when we're more and more irritated can only shorten our lives,so I do my best to calm down before I get really angry and fortunately I seldom reach the limit when I can't hold my nerves any longer and start shouting at other people.

I earn all those mishaps I have with the same person. I practice my patience up until I can still hold it for a while. When I explode, I just simply get out of the things that might get us closer. I simply walk away. I create another world that is very apart from his own world. In that way, I apparently show that I'm into his deeds anymore and I'm truly mad.

Usually, I am not a person to explode immediately, but sometimes I think I do have to change a little bit. Some of my classmates (including roomates) are so rude and selfish and self-significant that theyoften say words that offend me. At the beginning I tried to peace my self thinking that every one would say something hurting, but soon I found my silence is contributing to their worse words. I won't be silent again. Life is limited and the most important thing in life is make myself happy and comfortable.

I'm not a picky person, I can control myself. But, when the time I'm about to explode, it's hard for me to be controlled. But, usually, I didn't confront a person in front of other people. But, when I'm mad, I can say that I really do.

Hi neilchua, I am calm person, who don't want to argue and take's the pressure for deeds of irritating person and never blasted at those people until now. Recentely I was diagonised with harmonal imbalance due to the stress and depression internally developed due to such person. If I blast at some point on them some other(my near one, not the irritating) person will be stressed up. I pray to God to give me patience and peace of mind. They are going to visit us. Let me know my patience level. Have a good day.

Same here. I often let it slide 'till it reach my breaking point. Downside is sometimes the person you finally reacted to is baffled, thinking you've no problem to the same thing they've said or done previously. Makes you think it's better to let it be known early if you get offended just to avoid the build up. Take care.
