    As the title of this threads reads, on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being angered most quickly and 1 being the least or hardly at all, how quickly are you angered.

    hmm only a scale of 1 to 5, then 5 x10 to the power of 18

    Didn't used to get angry at all towards anyone else, all of it was directed at myself but now all i have to do is go shopping or be in a crowd lol so 3 maybe....

    Towards others is zero, I never get angry with people, except when I'm driving. Then it's like a 5, the moment someone does something I consider 'stupid'.

    Towards myself, realistically about 3 I guess, but not always.

    Anger is an emotion I do not allow myself to feel. It's too dangerous.

    I come from a family of hotheads so I had always been proud of having a long fuse but these past few years, especially with insomnia, I am usually irritable.

    On an anger scale of 1 to 5, I'm about a 2 b/c I don't anger easily. Ignorance and blatant stupidity or carelessness irritates me, but it takes a lot to anger me. When it does happen its usually b/c I'm taking up for someone else b/c they're being bullied or pushed around. I despise people who try to push a smaller, weaker, less fortunate, etc. person around. It shows a lack of honor and integrity, and that angers me b/c its uncalled for.

    I don't really get pissed off at people that aren't directly related to me. It depends of course. My immediate family usually cop most of the shit. But with us, you start to worry when we aren't actually throwing knives at each other...

    depends on the subject. some topics, im just permanently angry about and they come up constantly, so im angry pretty much all the time.

    however, there are other things that couldnt ever make me angry. so on the scale id say 5.

    Thank you all for your responses.

    For me, in the recent weeks I have gone from a 5 to 3.5

    I feel anger is a very dangerous emotion which can lead to devastating results.

    It depends. For the amount of time it takes to anger me it's around a 0 or 1; I am a timid person but when it comes to people I am closer to, like family, it's closer a 2.5 .
    For the duration/growing intensity it's a 5. When I get angry, I tend to stay angry.

    My anger is not a bonfire; it simmers underneath the surface like an ember and takes a long time to disappear. Most often it grows stronger until it gets burned out. I don't show it and I dealt with my anger this way for many years. It is unhealthy; "anger is an coal you hold in your hand - if you don't let go it will hurt you." This is one of my most unhealthiest habits and no doubt has helped cause a lot of my emotional problems.
