Not sure I'd call it a skill. Nothing ever sets me off though. Probably my lack of caring or regard for everything...

I agree with a lot of these posts.

It's a skill for some and a natural ability for others. Either way, it's something that's useful to have/learn in the case that you have a high-speed vehicle barreling towards you.

i guess i can call myself calm nothing really surprises me or triggers many feelings anymore. And i think of it as something that helps but sometimes you need to let your emotions out

From what I've seen it's a skill or trait. People I've known just cannot stay calm no matter what. You can try to get them to do so, they'll think about it but still can't make it happen. Then there are people who just can or are naturally calm.
I am so calm it scares me. I 've had someone curse me out to th depths of hell but I still remained calm.

Guess it depends on the situation, because there are different situations where you can stay calm. If you're getting super pissed about something, and someone says to calm down, I would consider that a skill to be learned. It's pretty easy to learn not to rage if you try.

But staying calm in a dangerous situation, like a potentially near death one, is less of a skill and more of a natural ability imo. Because it's a lot harder to train than learning not to rage, as most are not put into life or death situations constantly.

I'm a naturally calm person, but I feel like it's all in the mind. If you're willing to teach yourself, then you can do it.

I don't know really. I can stay really calm and my friends compliment me for how calm I remain all the time in bad situations. I guess it can be a skill you develop over time.

I work in a fast paced environment which involves a lot of customer interaction. As the store manager, I have no choice but to be calm and professional. That doesn't stop me from muttering vulgar under my breath when around the back of house.

I think it is a skill. It is like the ability to learn quickly or to adapt to new situations. It's possible to train yourself to be calm.

I mean, some people are naturally more calm than others, but yes you can learn to be more calm, and therefore there is a skill aspect to it. I think most things are like this. If you couldn't change/learn things to better yourself as a person, then the whole world would be full of immature people.
