Keeping your temper. It may be something others can't do as efficiently.



Rate your temper any number in between 1 & 100 (You can also share your stories, and etc...)

I'm not sure. Maybe a 40-50? Maybe higher.

I don't get mad easily or often. But I have a sharp tongue so when I am mad I may have trouble controlling it. Still haven't even freaked out to the extent of the man in the gif. XD At most I broke my calculator once because I was frustrated with a math problem.

I usually stay in control.

5, I almost never get mad, and when I do I don't generally make outbursts, I'm more likely to walk away and focus on something else for a while and calm down.

Around 20 to 35. I cuddle with my cats or punch the boxing bag to get out of anger and frustration.

Depends,

I usually avoid getting angry at all, I kinda just sit their and try to solve the situation first

But if the person who is causing problems is being irrational then I get really angry, Like maybe a 75. No joke.

But only when they persist, don't back off, and don't have a reasonable excuse for it.

Not great. I've got attitude / anger problems and a mood disorder. B-bam. Doesn't make my temper the calmest ever, but I really, really try to control it, and to an extent, I've gotten far better over the years. But it's still not great. Which is why I don't like to talk much.

I'm pretty good at it. If 100 is a viking berserker crossed with a raging tiger, and 1 is an inanimate object, I'd probably be at around the low 30s.

I'm rarely angry and, when I am, I don't ever really break anything.

It all comes down to thinking about the cost and reward of the behavior you're considering. Pretty much just ask yourself if it's worth it and what you can actually gain out of it other than a childish sense of glee or relief. You should ask yourself also if what is pissing you off is really worth the anger, or if you're just being silly and overreacting.

It's pretty stupid to be blinded by rage every time something bothers you. It doesn't show how tough you are or how independent you are. It shows how unstable and unreasonable you are. I think of it as a little kid throwing a tantrum and/or crying every time something doesn't go his/her way. S*** happens, that's all there is to it to a lot of things that bother people. Move past that when you're well over a decade beyond childhood.

I'm pretty good, unless something really pisses me off or provokes me. Fortunately, even if that were to happen, I still have logical reasoning and have yet to go completely berserk.

If I call you names, will you get angry, call me a dirty pig, and spank/whip me?

Around 25. It very, very difficult to get me angry most of the time, but I have a couple irrational triggers that can provoke a white-hot rage. The most common is singing in certain genres without accompanying music, in a pretentious and overblown fashion. They're fairly specific.

Said rage rarely comes out in the real world, and when it does, the effects are never very destructive. I've never damaged anything I knew I would miss or have to repair/replace. I'm likely to start pacing around looking for random useless trash I can vent my anger on, but that's more or less limited to actual trash (that won't make much of a mess, seeing as I'd have to clean it up), and I'm not about to pull something out of the garbage bin.

I have lashed out verbally once or twice, but it's usually in the form of a single caustic remark, after which I get embarrased. As someone who thinks anger is pretty silly most of the time, the shame of having been angry will quickly outweigh my actual anger, regardless of its intensity.

I also tend to get irritated when inanimate objects get in my way. People, I can forgive, but when I can't easily accomplish something because of unsatisfactory motor control and/or plain physics, I can get in a bad mood pretty quickly. I resent the outside world making me pay it any more attention than necessary.

Essentially, although I've got something of a temper, I have an easy time controlling it, especially around other people. I've never been anything even vaguely close to impulsive, so putting a damper on that kind of wild emotion comes naturally to me. My anger is pretty peculiar in that I'm naturally very selective and inhibited in how I vent it.

Yeah, I 100% agree.
There really isn't a point to getting mad.
If others make you mad, you just have to realize and accept that not everyone is going to like you or treat you well. That's just how the world is.
Everyone is different and you can't always control the outcome of the situation. It's only your choice on how you react on it. If you allow the situation (or person) to "drown" you in misery, then you will be miserable.

Not saying that one should avoid being angry because it's impossible to do so. Just don't make it your main focus.

Being angry isn't worth the effort and nothing positive ever comes out of it.

it's really hard to make me go on a rampage. I don't get pissed off easily, I can only think of 2 times ever that I've gone off
