Do you have a long or a short fuse?

Do you easily get angry? Or are you the very essence of the word calm?

I've got a very long fuse, but also a very big bomb at the end of it. I rarely get angry, and it's difficult to get me angry too, but when I do you'll want to stay away!
I'm generally very calm and patient, but if I've gotten angry for real, I get really mad and scary.

I'd probably compare myself to Treebeard from LotR. Very tall and lumbering (pun definitely intended!), a bit slow in thought and perhaps a bit absent-minded, but very patient and calm when it comes to most things. But when Saruman burns and chops down my friends....... Oh he ded!

I have a pretty long one. The problem is just that it doesn't reset itself when I'm out of the stressful situation. I just let it burn, bit by bit, until my long fuse has become short. Though even when it finally goes off I don't tend to do much more than yell at someone and lock myself in my room to sulk.
The picture of mental health, I assure you.

I’m a very emotional and sensitive person so my answer is similar to @Satan’s. A few touchy subjects that can easily set me off, otherwise it’s hard to get me MAD mad and I’m more likely to get a little upset or hurt first.

Oh, super long. Maybe too long. Sometimes I’ve been in situations where I wonder I would’ve been better off raising my voice a bit

For me it kind of depends where I am and who I’m with. In general I’m a pretty calm person when my ADHD doesn’t have me bouncing everywhere, but I have far less tolerance for my family than I do for the guys I work with and am less likely to get properly angry at work than I am at home. People at work always say they’d like to see me angry because they can’t imagine what I’d be like.

Honestly it depends on the situation. I can have all the patience in the world for say, a kid giving me grief. Like today I had to physically restrain a kid to prevent him from chasing around students trying to hit them for about 5 minutes straight and I kept my cool the entire time. But if the Wi-Fi isn't working like it should be, I get angry fast. IT SAYS CONNECTED SO ****ING ACT LIKE IT!!! So yeah, it depends on the situation.

I don’t get angry with anyone really. I just don’t see the point. I will get my feelings hurt easily, probably because I always have this fear deep inside me that no one likes me, or I am not good enough. But I love all of you and I try to be the nicest I can be. <3

when it comes to my little brother, there is no fuse, I'm just mad at him for being here
in general, middle of the road I guess? I don't get set off often but just here and there, sad upset is more likely though

I have a ton of patience, however I get irritated very quickly if someone is outright insulting me just to be a prick.

Sometimes a guest is like that at work and my friends tell me how they could see my ears and face get red.
