    Default NTs, What Makes You Lose Your Temper?

    What makes NTs blow up?

    I find that I have trouble controlling my temper when a problem occurs that I think could have easily been avoided.

    I also have a real problem controlling it when I'm in a situation where a strong emotional response is provoked. Yes--I get mad about being mad...sad...any intense emotion.

    For me it's if something keeps happening that I don't want to happen and I feel unable to fix or stop the problem.

    (Emotional) projection... almost always makes me roll my eyes.

    That said, I don't attribute such behavior to MBTI types. It's a bit more complicated than that, methinks.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    When something happens that makes my effort pointless; i.e. waste of my time.

    Pretty much the combination of:

    - Losing control of a fucked up situation
    - People trying to control me
    - People who didn't get the hint the first or second time I told them blatantly to back off/any other thing.
    - Not eating (I'm a real bitch if I don't eat all day)
    - Not sleeping (sometimes I just cry, along with losing my temper)
    - Time of month (Same stuff as not sleeping...hormones)
    - People not getting off my back about things.


    There's probably more, but I'm able to keep my cool most of the time. It's usually a concoction of the above things listed that throw me off the edge.

    Drawing me in to fix your mess when I took all the necessary steps to avoid the mess to begin with. Taking advantage of the fact that I do genuinely sympathize with people and want to help.

    Projecting your insecurities onto me.

    Passive aggression. Expecting me to read your mind, then getting mad when I don't.

    Being dismissive of me or talking down to me.

    It's hard to pinpoint exactly what ticks me off because it varies considerably depending on the person or situation. But yeah, generally I get the most steamed up when someone else's fuck ups end up inconveniencing me and especially if it makes me have to do something over again (oh man, I freaking loathe to do things twice).

    And details. Details frustrate me to no end. :steam:

    Oh lord...my temper used to be fast and hot, but it's cooled down quite a lot in recent years. It's not that less things piss me off, but I've gotten better at controlling my temper.

    When I lose my remote control and I can't change the channels, I get so angry I go out and beat my 70 year old neighbors to cool down.
