Anger Management

Quiz: What screen character is your Anger Twin?

Are you a slow-burner, the explosive type – or totally zen?

1. You are walking on the pavement on a horrible wet day. A driver speeds past and ploughs through a flooded drain, splashing your clothes. How do you feel?

I'll live

A bit put-out
2. You did a great job on a project in work but someone else is muscling in on taking the credit. What do you do?
Challenge them to an arm wrestle at lunchtime
Scream at them in a team meeting

Sabotage the project so that they get the blame for it not working out
Say nothing. Sure it's all for the good of the company.
3. You lift the empty top layer of what's left of the Christmas chocolates and find someone has already eaten most of the bottom layer. Do you?

Laugh it off and have a coffee cream
Throw the box against the wall

Lock everyone in the sitting room until someone admits they ate the caramel ones
Ah, it saves you breaking your New Year healthy resolutions
4. Your housemate or other half has promised for three weeks in a row to clean the bathroom (you cleaned the kitchen) but each time... didn't. What do you do?
Stop cleaning the kitchen
Clean it myself

Leave them
Rip the cistern from the wall
5. Which of these cake-cutting jobs make you angriest?
OMG, pick one and stick to it

That's just not right
I can't put my finger on why this annoys me
6. You have had something important on your 'to-do' list today. It's now 9pm and you have ticked off 15 other minor things - but not The Thing. How do you feel?

Annoyed - I'm a terror for procrastinating
In a blind rage at myself

In a blind rage at everyone who distracted me today
Calm - I'll get to it
7. A politician who you REALLY don't agree with is on a TV panel. What do you do about it?
Suffer on in case they say something to change your mind
Tweet your criticism at the politician's handle and the show's hashtag

Turn off the TV and go to bed
Throw the TV out the window
8. THIS is the scene behind you as you sit down for an early bird in a new restaurant you've been dying to try. What's your kneejerk reaction?
Eyeball the baby to let it know you won't take any of its crap
Think: "Oh, how adorable!"

Approach the parents and warn them in advance to keep it down
Feel a bit anxious but immediately feel bad about it

You try so hard to keep your cool because you know when go off on one, you Go Off On One. You rarely succeed in keeping a lid on it but afterwards, you feel terribly ashamed.

You're a good person at heart but you are going through a phase where Every Little Thing pushes you over the edge. You are hoping you will get through this and rediscover your inner unagi.

Yes, you can be quick to anger but it's righteous anger and it's generally over serious stuff. Not everyone sees it that way but you know that you're Fighting the Good Fight.

Yours is a cold and relentless anger. A wrong was done to you and you won't rest until you are fully avenged. It's fair to say you live your days in a haze of highly focused anger.

Anger is your middle name. And your first. And last. You thrive on seeing red and have no regrets about it. You are never happier than when you are swinging someone around by their pigtails.

You don't understand why others get angry. And in the face of another's rage, you just shake your head and wish they would accept a cup of your home-dried camomile and lavender tea.
