    Yep, exactly--do the job right or get out of the way and that anger evaporates. Got a ENTJ sister, an ESTJ cousin and friend and I see this with them...it's not personal.

    ESFJ--it gets personal. And ugly.

    When I can't control my temper, I usually just end up going "JESUS CHRIST WHY AREN'T THINGS WORKING OUT THE WAY THEY SHOULD BE RIGHT NOW?!? :steam: " When I'm actually mad at someone personally, I'm very very good at keeping a lid on my anger.

    Not sure why that is actually.

    From my own experience, I'm mostly afraid of particular ESFPs because the fact that they can't control what they express when they're angry, and generally seem to be on a roller coaster of emotions (just the ones I know, just reminding). It was the reason why I left college so early last year...I couldn't/didn't know how to deal with it.

    Maybe one of them has undiagnosed Tourette's.

    My guess would be EJs have the hardest time, its like torture to make them control it. IPs have the most control. Percieved loss of control is a decision on my part and is apparent as I can stop at the drop of a hat. EP and IJ are in the middle.

    In my experience EJs are the type most likely to break something because of losing control of their temper.

    I'd have to say it's a tie between ESFP and ESFJ, the former from a congnitive function perspective, the latter from real life experince. My reason for ESFP is that such an individual leads with a here and now method of thinking (Se) and thus more likely to act first, fueled by Fi, which by nature is more emotioanl than Fe. Then again, my sister can have a foul temper when someone gets on her wrong side, and I'm fairly certain that she's ESFJ (I've also seen example of angry tempered ESFJ's in fiction), which is odd considering that Fe is suppose to be about group harmony, valuing social norms, and whatnot.

    From typed (in other words, have been tested) individuals in real life, ESFJ women. They can`t seem to help themselves, no matter how hard they try.

    Yep, ESFJs can control their temper because of Fe, pending on their sense of propriety and where they feel comfortable expressing themselves, because they're less likely to just express wherever.

    Unlike my ESFP mom, who once felt compelled to kick a screen door in when I was around 8 years old.

    I would tend to think ESFPs have more problem with this, followed by ExTJs, then ENFPs, and then, only then, ESFJs and ENFJs.
