    Default J/P and anger

    Is anger issue related with J and P preference or not?
    I am talking especially about feeling a lot of anger inside.
    Maybe a perceiver is more tolerant of others and things in general and he has less anger and goes with the flow?
    thanks.

    I'm pretty tolerant of others, but I have some minor anger management issues about general frustrations .

    You might be able to say that situational anger is partly dependent on J/P, but it might be a stretch.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    Thinking about it briefly, I have a hunch that anger usually gets triggered when the Judging function is crossed.

    For Perceivers, the judging function is internalized. it's also more conceptual in nature... it's about principles, not rules.

    J types seem to get more pissed when someone doesn't follow the rules -- Fe, when someone is rude, Te, when someone does stupid impractical things that create chaos.

    The P types might flex more outwardly but inside the principles (Ti/Fi) can get crossed and anger might be harbored.

    Still, anger's more a hodgepodge, it spills over and can't be attributed solely to a particular function. The bottom line is that extroverts are probably more like to SHOW their anger than introverts.

    Yeah, I think you may be on to something here. I have noticed that at least in my experience, the J's I know get more angry than the P's I know. Not necessarily emotional, but angry. The FJ's will get more emotional (likely because of Fe), whereas the TJ's will get more annoyed and enraged (likely because of Te). The P's I know are harder to provoke and make angry.

    I think when my Judging functions were working, there were more emotions involved rather than when my Perceiving functions were..

    Judging in general seems to be more emotional, and thus susceptible to anger (like, "this guy's cheating", "you lied to me") rather than perceiving, which mostly is simply seeing what happens or is there.

    Thank you for your input!
    I suspected, for my experience, that J types are more prone to anger than P when something goes wrong.

    I've never heard mbti address anger much in the descriptions of the types. But I get angry so that I need to take a breath and calm down. Everything feels so obstructive to me at times! No matter what I do my actions are thwarted, I have to spend inordinate amounts of time fixing all the screwups that come my way, of not my own fault btw. Irks me to no end. Why can't things run smoothly for once? Why not? Does everyone encounter these mishaps in life and I'm just blowing them out of proportion? Doesn't everyone live on a budget like me? Can't stand it. Maybe I'll go live in the woods. I seeth over telecommunication companies.

    I think most of the Js I know are way more likely to get angry or be irritated. Ps are so much more go with the flow. All of my experience with them, and I still haven't been able to develop that, they just end up driving me crazy! Gah!
