LOL, I did better then I thought I would!

I am NOT an angry person, but I have been really frustrated lately.

I scored 7 also. I tend to hold it all in for a long time & when I blow up it's not a pretty sight.

I would venture to guess that the source of your frustration is not being able to see through the eggs over your eyes. As you can see, mine

You answered TRUE to a total of 12 questions.
You have answered TRUE to ten or more of these statements or have answered TRUE to one of the last 4 questions. A score of this type suggests that you are seriously prone to anger problems. Anger problems are likely causing difficulty in family, social and/or occupational settings. We strongly recommend that you seek out an anger management program (available through your EAP program at work or through local therapists) to help yourself learn better, more constructive ways to manage your anger



Wow I didn't think I was THAT angry !

I got a six, so I must be alot more angry than I thought I was. I grew up in the explosive environment too, so most of the time when I am angry I keep it to myself.

I scored a 1. I agree with Alix. Moxt of the questions tend to be too rigid. for instance, when I was in my early 20's, I did punch a steel safe once, and a brick wall, and broke the tail-light lens of a van that I owned. But I never hit anyone except that they hit me first, and then only three times in my life. And I only hit the other person as a last resort.

I am usualy a peacemaker by nature. Now, I never get so angry as to lash out. I tend to get quiet and think things through to support my opinions or arguments rather than get emotional. That used to drive my wife crazy because she didn't know what I was thinking for up to 8 - 10 minutes at a time. She was expecting instant reaction rather than a carefully thought out response. But I didn't want to blurt out something that would just cause more problems or that was false and said in the heat of anger.

Now I have said stupid things out of anger before. But you have to really get on my nerves before that will happen. And it takes an awful lot ot get me there. Only one of my boys ever pushed me far enough that I got physical whith him, and then I just pushed him away from me.

I learned that anger is a learned response, and just as I could choose anger, I can choose to just turn it off at will. I don't always think to do that, but I often do. It mystifies my wife how I can just turn it off at will. It's a learned skill.

Anger is loss of self control, and just as I am in complete control of any vehicle I drive, I try to control my own self. Maybe that's why I love such sports as archery, air-hockey, and games such as darts. They require mastery of self.

I don't know who wouldn't want get even, or who ever did not regret saying something. Unless of course person is so far gun that saying something terrible feels just right.

I scored 11; I think I should have scored 12, but answer false for one kind of tricky question.

If you ask people about me, I am the best person to have around, nice and quite too.

0 - 4 Better than Normal Anger Management Skills


You answered TRUE to a total of 3 questions.

You have answered fewer than 5 questions as being TRUE for you. This suggests that you are more in control of your anger than are most people.

I think I need to take it over again...LOL I thought I was a very mellow lady.

I went back to see why I scored 3
#7 I get toungue tied..LOL
#9 showing emotions..true..I should have had another 15 years with Paul
#11 I am prone to migrains so getting up set will trigger one

I am sure that there was a time when I was angry maybe they just didn't cover it on this test.

Was this angry a 1-10 level, 1-100 or 1 in a thousand?

I'm in the better range of normal. Works for me. Being too much more mellow, to me, would mean I'm being walked all over (something that has been a problem in the past!).
