GetRekt, your saying that because a fictional green monster can beat the crap out of a fictional green clothed god that it is ok to loose your temper. One word... physics.
in almost any situation beind able to use rational thinking is essential as even in a fight or flight situation you need to be able to quickly evaluate your surroundings to figure out your best and next move
hulk can't control his anger yet he beat the hell out of Loki easily. I think some factors may affect your capability of being strong, but not this one. Anger triggers you to seek revenge for example.. and in that revenge you become a different person then u improved eventually to a strongest person u could possibly be.
Couldn't that also be seen as controlling your temper? Like not getting mad because you've reached your limit? That may be a stretch but wouldn't you have to control your anger to know when to stop? So maybe it's kind of a first step to being the strongest person.
the strongest person is someone that recognize his limits, and is not ashamed of becomming help.
Taken from that perspective, you are right. I was looking at it as an all or nothing situation, but even in my example I was describing controlled anger, thus negating my vote.
psych Dave is disagreeing with his decision. He said he disagrees but he then said in his comment that anger is necessary at times. That is controlling your anger. knowing when to use anger and when not to use your anger is controlling your anger and yes, it is very effective.
I disagree with PsychDave,
Passion is something infused with emotion. Being passionate is good but there is a thin line from being passionate and letting emotion control you. Passionate people do not speak with , rather with compelling emotion with underlying anger that appeals to people.
This is not the same as outright anger as the moment you let go of your emotions, your speech and thought process becomes cloudy, overwhelmed simply by the goal you intend to achieve. This leads to blind attacks, being overly offensive and disregarding the analysis of the opposing opinion.
Furthermore, it can always be the case where "being the better man" is applicable here. Letting anger controlling you is simply futile.
Most of the time, controlling anger is the better path. There are times, however, when anger is needed. When faced with rational arguments, rational response is effective. When faced with irrational hatred, blind faith, or another form of absolute surety, emotion can have more impact than any amount of facts. I don't mean violence, but there are times when being passionate, what changes includes showing anger, can be more persuasive than a calm, reasoning voice.
It's possible to use your anger to your own advantage. If you can't, it's a huge weakness, because mindless anger is something which can be manipulated and controlled.
At first you've got to subdue your rage and practice rational thought.
As you solidify the rational opinions and views you believe are necessarily right, good or true, you train yourself to speak even-handedly in debates over these topics.
Over time, you begin to associate your emotions with those things that have proven themselves necessary. As you do that, you shift your anger from being a mindless Hulk like force that urges you to swear and insult and be irrational, into a power which re-enforces your self-worth.
At that point, you've learned to control your anger and use it to your advantage. Never again will your opponent control you through your rage. You've gone from Barbarian to Warrior.
