You experience being wronged with a heightened sensitivity, potentially experiencing bitterness and frustration when things don’t turn out as expected. Your anger makes you a quick responder as you stand your ground without hesitation, however this may lend a false sense of control and this anger is often a stand in for other underlying emotions such as grief or fear.
While outbursts of anger may be temporarily soothing, they are a short term fix to a long term problem and can be highly damaging to relationships with self and others.
Being anger-prone can be difficult in a relationship as expressions of frustration and moodiness often impact a partner or children in negative ways. Your irritability means you’re more likely to be bothered by day-to-day setbacks and may take things more severely than other members of your household.
In love more than in any other areas, your reactions may negatively affect the quality of the relationship, so it is important to check in with yourself with regards to your behavior often.
Your work life may be affected at times by your tendency to anger, as your heightened reactions may have an effect on those around you.
You thrive more on solitary work endeavours as your reactions don’t have space to affect others in this scenario. Your willingness to express what bothers you can be a strength at work as you are likely the first to stand up in the face of things like injustice and your intense reactivity means you are the one most likely to have their voice heard.
This level of reactivity has its setbacks—oftentimes you may see relationships both in love and work strain as you express your restlessness, anger, and irritability. Your excitability can make it hard to listen to others and even harder to compassionately hold what they have to offer without jumping in with a heightened response. Your behavior can result in a degree of alienation as others are prone to move away from or shut down around you.
Being strongly reactive can be very effective as you’re likely to speak up quickly and make yourself heard by all concerned. Some of the most influential figures in history have been quick to anger, making them that much more dedicated and impassioned with regards to their cause. If you can direct your anger towards a good fight, think here of Martin Luther King or Greta Thunburg, you may put your character to good use and insite positive change. The more you focus this energy at a cause, the more you can, with intention, move it away from personal relationships and day-to-day strife, easing the strain on those you care about or need to work with.
If anger arises in work or love, ask yourself what the threat is and how it is best dealt with. Often times, you will discover it is not so pressing as you feel it to be and may not require a reaction at all. In this case, your thoughts are your friend, as is reason.
You are easy-going and non-reactive. You aren’t fazed easily by external disturbances and are able to approach most situations with a level head and level emotions.
