Being Angry Makes Me Angry

Being Angry Makes Me Angry

I hate being angry and so I hate the adversary exchanges that you frequently find in the social sciences and actually in the physical sciences as well where people are snide and they use sarcasm. 

Some people enjoy being angry and some people really hate it and that is a known difference. It is a know dimension of individual differences.  For some people anger is a positive emotion. For others it’s negative.  I happen to be an extreme case with for me anger goes into depression very quickly.  


I hate being angry and so I hate the adversary exchanges that you frequently find in the social sciences and actually in the physical sciences as well where people are snide and they use sarcasm.  You find a lot of that and I have hated that all my life.  I have tried to avoid that.  I haven’t initiated that much, not because I’m a saint, but because I hate being angry.
