You have a tendency to be aggressive and defensive, especially in your interactions with others.You may appear to be very competitive and self-guarded and you often lose your cool when things don’t go your way.
You are a very peaceful person. You dislike conflicts and avoid them as much as possible. You would rather agree or give in to others viewpoints, than create disputes of any kind.
You can lose your cool in certain situations, but your triggers aren’t irrational. You can express that you’re feeling annoyed but at the same time you will never have an outburst of your rage.
