Well, as someone who has anger management issues, it's not a skill i'm masterful at.

It can be hard, yeah, but you can get better at it through practice, and if needed, relaxation techniques or even anxiolytics (medication).

Staying calm requires patience. Patience is a virtue that I do not have. Therefore staying calm in certain situations is something that I can not do or have to work extra hard to do.

It is most definitely a skill, and a very difficult to acquire one at that. Most people cannot stay calm in the most dire situation, where it matters most, and they pay for it. I think I am better at it than most since I willingly took myself off ADHD medication years back, and had to learn self-control. Maybe I am a bit too calm now, actually...

I'm not sure it would be called a skill, but I definitely do believe patience plays a role in this.

Absolutely something that is learned. That is why drill instructors are constantly screaming in bootcamp... it teaches recruits to remain calm, despite chaos, so that they can do what they are being told, and the drill instructors quit screaming.

I would say part of it comes down to how someone is but past that i would say its a skill. I know i use to have anger issues where i would black out and attack the person who provoked me but ive trained myself to stay calm now and now it takes a lot to even phase me.

Yes, because there are some situations where acting up and letting your emotions get the better of you can lead to events that would cause even more trouble or dismay.

Yep.

When shit hits the fan, keeping calm is a really valuable skill to have, as you can make decisions and act quicker and efficiently.

Oh yeah, had to work at it a long time. Now I need to learn when to stick up for myself instead of just letting people say dumb stuff to me.. Even if I don't care atm it gets annoying when people are dumb repetitively~

Not for some people lol. Their subconscious and natural reactions are just so different that they don't give a fk and they are completely oblivious to the fact that other people would.
