I'm not prone to flare ups and prefer to calmly address a situation, dropping your voice low helps you keep control as the one shouting has to pause to hear you.

What are you saying about me? Don't you EVER COME NEAR ME OR ANYONE I KNOW AGAIN!!!

Also, occasionally, yes, but usually I just let it simmer inside until I've calmed down.

Try provoking me you will find out......

Self control rules, never a problem,







and don't make me have to tell you again!
I'm afraid I have a short fuse and its got me into trouble more times than I care to think about.
I like to think that I am able to exercise self control but then someone/something upsets me and.....
I have my warrior princess moments as they are known to my friends. Lucky I don't carry a chokram.
As I age it has become more difficult to remain calm, but except when alone, I can usually manage.
Worked on a short fuse for many years. I then did my Samaritan training and things changed for the better.
No. More often than not, I'm able to retain self control.
I'm known for being impossible to wind up.
When someone attempts to provoke me, odds are what they are suggesting about me is to some extent true so rather than prove them right . . . I just keep my mouth shut.
I respond rather too quickly to provoking, and often don’t think before I speak.

I hardly ever respond to provocation.

For example, I can honestly say that in around half a million miles of driving I've never sounded my car's horn in annoyance at another driver, nor shaken my fist, raised one or two fingers or anything else. I simply shrug my shoulders and ignore things.

When I worked on the railways I attended a course on 'conflict avoidance', where we were all given scores out of 40 to indicate how likely we were to get into conflict situations. One train conductor (who had a reputation for having to call the police to sort out problems) scored 38. Everyone else, with just one exception, scored between 12 and 27. I was the exception, with a score of just 3.
Never easily provoked. Being 'offended' serves only to satisfy the offender.
