    I tend to hold in my anger as it builds up in an argument/situation. I try to figure out of what I'm getting mad at is worth it. I hate it when i see other people flip out over something insignificant, so I try and avoid that.

    I tend to avoid flipping out so much that I just deal with it all on the inside. Hmm.. can't be too healthy, huh? But once the time does come when I get made, I just rant and get sarcastic and just kinda yell irrational things that kinda defeat the purpose.

    Heh heh. Yeah, I'm guilty of that too. I get frustrated with something, and the more I mull it over, the more I turn into the Clean Police. I start cleaning the house and grouching at everyone else for the house being disheveled - it's my way of creating order when I don't feel in control. I'm not a joy to be around when I'm like that, and I do my best to curb the behavior.

    Does that mean I should stay away from angry ENFPs?
    I think we're a great bunch, personally. Don't stay away if you don't want to.

    I hate being around people who react to most situations by erupting. It makes me tired all over. I mean, getting riled up prevents you from being able to think clearly, and I feel really our of control when I can't think clearly, so I try not to let the anger build. But, I also don't keep it in - I speak to the person I'm having a problem with as soon as I can, to get the situation resolved, because I hate walking around angry and I don't like to leave things unresolved.

    Lol. I do the ironing. Everyone's learned not to come near me when I'm ironing.

    In fact I've noticed that when a pile starts to build up, people start upsetting me on purpose.

    LOL! I feel the same way. I start casting a disapproving eye on everything that's messy, and then I blame someone for the mess being there. I turn into such a bossy cow. Not endearing.

    my anger usually turns into depression, self-deprecation, and anti-social behavior.

    i usually blame myself if things go bad or if i'm angry.

    Im alsmot never ever angry.... Only in my car when I see crazy drivers sometimes.
    The very few times I am angry, I turn cold, abrupt in my words. It's like a very cold, calm but cold angriness. Does this sound ENFP enough?

    Despite my nick, anger is one of the worst states for me to be in. My biggest problem isn't losing control when I am angry, but the fact that I am in total control of my anger yet choose to use it to hurt everyone that may have been involved or around. In my youth, this anger was used towared physical destruction of doors, walls, objects, other kids etc...

    As I aged, I learned to use my very keen sense of peoples emotions to really get them where it hurt. When I am pissed, I become very task oriented on whatever I am doing while also extremely vulgar and spewing the most hurtful words you can imagine. You might think I am kidding, but I become really aware of what buttons to push in the meanest ways, and even able to penetrate the thick leathery hides of INTx's.

    Obviously this is all done in the loudest and most evil way possible, and making everyone unsafe by just being around or saying calm down. If I spot you, expect to be hit (emotionally) where it hurts (in your most vulnerable area). The good news is that to get to this stage of anger, takes a good amount of pressure, so if it occurs, it was probably severely and unneededly and really harshly provoked. Most of the time I would just get loud when its simple things but kinda walk away till I calm, but if it gets to that stage, no I want to be there to see the words cut you.


    I have no idea why this would happen, i.e. striking people on their vulnerabilities, because in normal times, I would never ever, ever, ever, try to hurt anyone and go great lengths to protect peoples weak spots from others by defending them and or changing topics or complementing them etc... to help them overcome their weak points, and see their better side. I think its the inate ability of the ENFP to spot the good in people and motivate them, that also gives us the shadow ability to spot the worst in people and point it out.

    Anyway, I posted this without reading any of the other responses so I don't dilute my own thoughts on the matter, so I am curious to see how many people can relate to this or am I just an evil bastard.

    PS: I rarely get that angry as stated above, and it never lasts for more than five minutes.

    Anger manifest is stereotypical 'Fe' -- ENFP being expressive by nature (and more bark than bite, IMO, 'cause we are nice like that) can be misconstrued when 'angry' or partially joking. Also 'P' being more about possibilities and XNFP more about metaphors etc., I think at least for me when I say things people may take it more seriously or face value.

    Example, just now I was on the front porch with my INFP roommie and her 2 IXXX friends (I'm gonna guess IXXJ) and I told them I got 'run over' by a bike (jerk sideswiped me and snagged my bag). I said next time I'm just gonna kick the bike to knock the biker off.

    The IXXJ were listening very quietly, even bored until I said this. And then one girl said, "Wow! Where is this violence coming from??" I don't know if she were joking as well, but anywhoo, I realized joking about kicking people (even when deserved) doesn't go over very well in certain new company.

    I think at the brunch I was at earlier, the folks would have laughed or commiserated more with me.

    Or maybe not.
