    I have anger, I don't like it because it tends to sabotage the relationships I value so much with other people, it also gets in the way of me being able to communicate my nicer more thoughtful side with others. It definitely does feel good to let it out though, although I'm not a fan of uninhibited displays of anger for no reason as I am an intj and thus expect others/myself to have a good reason to express anger when anger is expressed, as I am aware of the potentially destructive/harmful nature of such displays.
    If my parents payed more attention to and valued more what I had to say when I was younger and aren't so judge mental about me being a little different I imagine I would have less anger. Considerably less anger. Also if they took my concerns more seriously instead of assuming I'm purposely doing it for attention when I would cry sometimes. In this way they were quite neglectful but I forgive them as I know they did their best as parents and sometimes that's all you can ask for I think

    Also, my father is an ESTJ (they commonly display sadistic tendencies) and I think that contributed to my anger a good deal

    i usually turn anger back onto myself or at a larger non-person entity (like Society or some smaller subset thereof). i don't know if it's bad or good, but i've definitely worked on being less angry at myself without finding myself getting angry at others more often.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Anger is not natural to my temperament, but I am capable of much greater anger than others can see externally. I can comprehend a great deal of the darker side of reality and human nature, and I can call up rage to match it in response, but I don't talk casually about it. It isn't a process I enjoy, and I don't like the feeling of anger, but it is an important response that I am capable of experiencing.

    I've found them to be bullies more than sadistic. They always back down when called out. Needless to say, they tend stick to bullying the weak and vulnerable. Not people who won't take their shit.
    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.

    No, not at all. On the rare occasion that I do get angry and worked up, I get over it really quickly.. I find that most things are not worth my energy.

    I didn't have anger Issues as a kid, I was happy go lucky for the most part. I often though adults were strange by what they did or said, I felt a lot of annoyance though, still do. As an Adult I do have some anger Issues, however not enough to have to put myself in check. What angers me, well honestly it takes a lot to get me angry, once I'm there you better move out of my way, I see red and my hearing is blank lol. People anger me, circumstances might anger me, it really does depend.

    How do I ensure my level of anger will remain calm, I stay away from things that provoke me, people who provoke me, situations that provoke me.

    My anger doesn't extend to things that are happening in the world like war or anything I can't change. Anything abusive with animals or children/elders anger me a lot. I don't flinch when I see things on TV that some people feel sad about etc. ( bombing/shootings in cities ect. )....I don't get myself worked up over things I have no control over.

    When I'm at home or in my community I have no reason to ever feel anger. It's only when I surround myself online with strangers or allow things that will never be relevant in my reality that can annoy me. I've experienced more anger online than I have in the real world, the upside of it I have full control over what/who I will or won't allow to get in my head/heart in a virtual world.

    All that said I think It's great to have a moment of rage, I actually enjoy it, weird huh ? I love releasing all that pressure, it feels so good to get it all out. I'm told I'm quite frightening and sexy at the same time when I'm angry, whateva

    People need to use anger to do things, not throw it at others.

    No, not at all, and when I get angry I usually just start crying.. so when I'm angry it just comes off as me being sad usually
