    Actually that is exactly what that means

    Sometimes one can do these things: yell, taunt, etc. as a rational choice. On the inside the person might be in full control of his/her behaviour and yet on the outside the person might look like he/she lost his/her temper. I sometimes do this, act angrier as a tactic, although really, on the inside, I'm not angry at all.

    Yes, people can manipulate the appearance of their displayed emotions to achieve a desired outcome as a tactic. My ENTP type 7 dad does this all the time. For ex, if he can't be bothered to do something or if he's done with a conversation, he likes to put on a show that he's angry (e.g., lots of yelling and raising his voice). Few minutes later, he's not angry anymore.

    I looked into it and you guys are right, it is a thing. Very messed up.

It felt extremely validating to reaffirm to myself that I wasn't some unfeeling humanoid cyborg "terminating" people, places and things left and right, but a genuinely feeling being to my very core, to the deepest, darkest recesses of my unconsciousness. lol
    This isn't my understanding, especially since there's plenty that Te drives, that have nothing to do with core values. Some, sure but to have that many core values about everything or most things, doesn't sound accurate. Do you have a citation for this?

    There have been many times when my temper has flared due to someone's laziness/stupidity causing repetitive problems, especially when there is no point, purpose, or sense in their behavior at all.

    When I was twenty two, I was needing in a filing cabinet that one of the people on night shift had locked with a skeleton key.

    I grabbed the drawer handle in a fit of rage and pulled. The lock gave way before the handle did, and the drawer came open with a horrible squeal... miserably mutilated locking mechanism hanging down on the inside, lol.

    In distant retrospect, I can see why this would scare people.

    I'm in general very laid back and not easy to anger. But when I'm angry, you'll know.

    Can relate to the above posts, very bad temper as a teenager (a family of overemotional Sensors will do that to you ), now I'm usually pretty relaxed with a reasonably long fuse however if I'm genuinely mad it'll be very obvious especially to those around me.
