Some people just have a shorter fuse.
Everyone has days where they feel more irritable than usual. We’ve all had moments where something as small as a spilled coffee or a jammed printer practically ruined our day. Sometimes people are easily irritated because they are sleep deprived or they have not had lunch yet.
When people have days like this, pretty much anything will irritate them. Most people can agree that some days are just bad days. However, some people are WAY more short-tempered than others.
Like the type of person who lashes out at her friends for simply canceling tonight’s plans. Most people would just be fine, but some of us just can’t handle the disappointment. If someone you know frequently escalates calm discussions to angry fights, they probably have a REALLY bad temper.
Expressing anger isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but if you’re unleashing your temper on your friends over the tiniest conflicts, that’s probably not a good sign. There are healthier ways to express anger.
Different people respond to situations and conflicts in different ways, and everyone knows someone who has a bad temper. If you’re dealing with someone who has a short temper (or if you’re looking in the mirror), sometimes the best thing to do is be patient and wait for them to calm down so you can talk to them without getting yelled at. If you’re someone who has a bad temper, you might want to be mindful of the way your anger affects others.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries are known for being impulsive and aggressive. They are competitive and easily-frustrated. When they are faced with conflicts and annoyances, they respond with anger.
They do not have much patience. For example, an Aries is likely to curse a lot when faced with traffic or packed subways during their commute to work.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers are emotional and sensitive. It doesn’t take much to upset a Cancer. Cancers are also pessimistic and suspicious. They are likely to throw a huge tantrum during arguments with their partner or friends.
For example, if a Cancer is not invited to a friend’s party, she will likely send an angry text to her the next day or even lash out on her on social media.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leos have trouble keeping their cool! They are loud and intense. The SMALLEST things can make them very upset.
For example, if one of their friends borrows their shirt and returns it with a small stain, Leos will probably start a huge yelling argument. Even when they are in public, Leos are known to make a big scene over small things.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are assertive and fierce. When things don’t go their way, they can get very angry. Some Scorpios are even known to be violent. When Scorpios have a temper tantrum, they are likely to scream and break things.
Be careful the next time you’re near an angry Scorpio!
