For the most part I am extremely easy going and have a very high tolerance for most everything. I am 67 years old and have never experienced even the most minor form of road rage. Yet I have a couple of triggers that just set me off. I think they are related.
Suppose we have a 3 way conversation going, it just happens to be about something I know about. One party is asking a question, the other party has little to no knowledge on the subject yet his opinion will be overwhelmingly accepted over mine. For some reason I take that very personal and feel highly insulted. I will very often have nothing to do with that person from that time on. The guy asking the question that is. I have no problem with the guy whose opinion was accepted. Another trigger I had was at work ( retired now thank god) If I gave an employee specific instructions on a procedure to be followed, (usually a diagnostic procedure as I ran a truck shop) and the employee completely ignored the instructions I would have this overwhelming feeling that the shop was completely out of control. I would take it very personal as if the employee was telling me my opinion was shit. Are things like this common triggers for anger? I don't do the best job of conveying my ideas and I am aware of this.
