    It's all just emotion.

    What matters is that we have the discipline to know how much emotion is necessary.

    Retribution serves a very useful social purpose. If those with antisocial tendencies are not weeded out, they would eventually dominate and cause the society to fall apart.

    Anger is a temporary state which allow one to act very aggressively against an oppressor and yet maintain their peaceful nature most of the time.

    .
    No, it really doens't. If someone had commited a legitimate crime then we have laws, almost everything else is petty squabbles - and not worthy of retaliation.

    I'd put a guess that there will be a gender devide on the answers to this question and also a partciular skew of you blokes 14 - 28 who beleive retribution is useful. Note this demographic group are the highest propotion of criminals. have higher inccidence of accidents etc.... angry young men cause problems, retrubition cause ssociety problems.

    Ok snuff from me,

    Anger is not conducive at all in my opinion .. Throw raw emotions into the equation and it becomes an absolute mess.

    I find that by feeling what i do then putting them feelings to one side so able to look at the situation with a rational mind. I find myself in a better place, i know that i can walk away if i choose

    Yes. I don't really care if people have anger and hate. I just don't think they should let their emotions dictate their actions. It is not efficient at all.

    Yes. I cannot help but think that the entire thought of "revenge" becomes less and less appealing as it is less logical throughout mental and emotional maturity.

    Lol .. You are so not a feeler .. That's OK. I can only speak for me but it got to a point where there was so much intensity in my emotions that i could probably murder someone. Maybe that is my fault for wearing my heart on my sleeve, people can take advantage easier. I know but i don't even see the manipulation coming until it is to late.

    Have you ever been pushed to your limits? When someone is in your face, pushing buttons for a reaction, laughing at you and you are almost ready to snap?

    What actually stops you?

    I don't get to that point. I don't care enough about them and what they're saying to get angry like that.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Is everyone else the same in this regard?

    Wow, that is good. Maybe then as the saying goes 'People only treat you the way you allow them to treat you' holds a lot of weight here. Something i should possibly take on board.

    Thank you.

    Well, I try and go for the most logical action. If they are actually hindering me from getting one of my goals done, then I will stop them, be it physically or verbally. However, if they are pestering me in a way that truly doesn't actually bother me from working on what I am trying to get done, then I will not care.
