Pretty simple, really.

When you're pissed off at another person or a group of people, do you get loud and belligerent or do you just do nothing and possibly ignore them?

and which one do you consider to be worst, screaming at someone until they submit or just giving the silent treatment and overall not caring?

Screaming is worst most of the time, unless the person in question needs yelling. Like bullying.

Anger has to go somewhere or it poisons you. But if it means you cause damage by becoming enraged, then you may just have to direct it where it hurts no one.

I would simply do nothing and ignore unless they're directly attacking me.

Screaming at someone until they submit.
That's kind of forceful.

I don't get angry, just annoyed.

Aren't arguments healthy in a way?


Quick question.

That whole screaming at someone until they submit can get you punched out. I'd be careful if you are one of those people

to be honest, for the both of those two questions it depends on what i'd be getting pissed about and who it is. if its random people, walk away. someone i talk to i may say something. rather fighting loud and all just depends on if you start pissing me off more after saying something ^^

I've been told i'm not one to piss off.

It's situational... it really depends on what's actually being said, more than anything.

When I was in high school, I had peers / upperclassmen (a mix) taking turns telling me to kill myself and how funny it would be, and that I'd never have friends, et cetera. In that situation, I got pissed. I kept my mouth shut until class was over and went into the bathroom and wrecked the place in a rage. My present self, however, would have stood up, walked over to one of their desks and grabbed them, and dragged them out and made an example of them. That WOULD have gotten me in big trouble, though, but I feel that the things they were doing back then were extremely serious and vile. It would take something of that caliber to actually make me take action, though.

Most of the time, at least where I am in life now, I would probably just let fly a few undertoned remarks that make them look stupid, and let them feel stupid. Screaming at someone in a rage is never the solution, though, because if you let emotion choose your words it's probably not going to make you look like you're on top. Back when I was commonly in situations where I would do something like that, talking/screaming wasn't an option, though.

I've had to fight large groups of people by myself (because they ganged up on me) and I disagree with the sentiment that doing nothing / ignoring the problem solves the problem. It never did for me. All it ever did was make people think I was a pushover, and that they could walk all over me with no consequence. The one point in my life that these things started to change, was when I started to grow some balls and send people to the hospital for their crap - then my life got better.

Of course, now that I'm an adult, I am definitely discerning as to whether or not to resort to even word-violence, as it can affect my future and freedom. Picking battles is important, but battle itself is necessary when the other side won't give. By battle, I mean verbal or physical, as there's little difference in the end.

Do nothing. It's not like what I say will change anything, people are insensitive.
