    I'm not talking about you aw shucks I'll say a few curse words and sleep it off kind of people.

    Who here has raging bull tempers? I'll slap a few pictures off the dresser, slam a few doors, etc.

    I used to. I'd fight for no reason at all. Perspectives on life changed.

    I did as well. I've learned to control it.

    I've mellowed a bit. I will cuss and *****, but generally won't get physical unless someone else does first.

    One thing I've noticed is if someone else is pissed off and ****ting on other people, I tend to get pissed off too. (other peoples moods have a dramatic affect on me) If they are aggressive towards people (or me), it doesn't bode well for the situation.

    When I was in my late teens and early 20s, I was quite sensitive about being rather short... part of this is because the sport I really loved, the one I was actually pretty good at, was basketball, and there ain't much room in that game for a 5-9 white guy, even if he can flat out fill it up from 20 feet...

    So, back then all you had to do was crack some kind of short joke at my expense, and the fight would be on... thankfully, after gettin' my butt thoroughly kicked a time or two or twelve, it occurred to me that I wasn't really cut out for playin' the bad***...

    I still have my temper, but I don't let it out to play very often... I ride close herd on it, because when I get really angry, I think I'm ten feet tall and bulletproof...

    Problem is, I'm not... and hell, I'm pushin' 60 now, it's time to start acting like an adult-- in real life, that is, I don't plan on changing my style in here... LOL...

    Reason why I ask is because, I'm 29 and I still have quite a bad temper. I've learned to control it when it comes to football, but when I get in to arguments..

    Just wondering what some good strategies might be. I know the obvious ones like take deep breaths and walk around some.

    taken deep breaths actually lets the oxygen get to your tense muscles. Some other strategies are removing yourself from the trigger that is getting you upset, doing something that you like, or excersiing. The trick is to know your triggers and your warning signs.

    I have really bad road rage over small stuff, but people who fail to yield the right of way and fail to use their turn signals make me blow my top.

    I also get incredibly angry when I see women being disrespected, whether it's at a bar or a grocery store.

    For me, something happened in my life that changed my perspective on it. I learned that being mad is a waste of time and energy. That the only person feeling my anger really, was me.

    I have a pretty bad temper. I'll yell and cuss and have broken things on occassion (my own stuff), but I've never gotten into fights or anything like that.

    Only thing that gets my temper boiling is someone on the left lane on a tollway going the speed limit and texting at the same time. :bang2:

    I was awful and I mean awful use to go off in blind rages and do stupid stuff I still get hotter than a $2.00 pistol though its very seldom now... but at least I don't do stupid stuff anymore I walk away before I act on anything or say anything hurtful. I would say that it is one of my greatest triumphs in life is not letting that awful temper get the better of me anymore but it was a battle and I was well into my 30's before I finally got the upper hand
