Have you a Temper?

As above have you a temper or are you relatively calm?
 
Do you find yourself getting worked up easily?

    Normally a fairly mellow person but pretty temperamental at the moment due to constant personal problems!

    Usually pretty horizontal apparently.
     
    However I do get a bit short tempered and frustrated over simple things when on cycle. Never violent though.

    What are we talking, business or pleasure?
     
    I'd say I'm very laid back about most things but then again could get right wound up about others. So that makes me.... Shaft.... But not as gay

    when i was younger i was well known for my short fuse and lack of self control, but as you get older you realise that its silly being like that
     
    im pretty chilled out these days, i think like everything there are still certain things that wind me up, but im much more controlled in my reactions

    I've got a hair trigger temper meaning I have to avoid anyone or any situation that is likely to set it off. Anger management techniques don't work for me, once I get angry no good counting to ten, by the time I reach ten I'm even angrier so only solution is to avoid any triggers, not always easy or even possible.

    Generally very laid back nowadays, chilled out loads over the last 5 years. 
     
    If frustrated or tired I can switch pretty quickly though and when I switch I'm very temperamental.

    Unaffiliated.

    Over the last 6 months I've notices Im getting a shorter fuse, i think its down to the 2 jobs I've been working and just constantly dealing with ejits. Doing call centre work for sky television where people ring in complaining about this and that and then doorwork at the weekend, again dealing with muppets, neither of which give me any job satisfaction but I've been doing them while writing up a thesis for the year. 
     
    I think its external factors causing me to have a short fuse as opposed to being born with a short temper.

    Laid back to the point of falling over... But like everyone else, I have my limits.
     
    I can be passionate about things and hold strong feelings on subjects, but it takes a lot to make me lose my composure.

    We do not forgive. We do not forget.

    Sometimes short tempered, but dont go looking for trouble either
     
    Once had an arguement with the mrs, where i proceeded to karate chop the ironing board,  this however cost me 25 notes..... as said getting all mental dosent get you very far.

    I don't have a temper no, I'm very argumentative though which is a lame trait as well!

    Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.

    Used to have a temper, but grew out of it, doesn't get you anywhere in business or in life
