What Kind of Predator Are You When You're Mad?
by Brian Whitney


Anger is a funny thing. All of us know that person who is all cool about everything until they get mad, then the fangs totally come out. They just go about their day, laughing and smiling and being nice to everyone, not even giving people around them any sign that they have a dangerous side. Then something makes them angry, and they turn into a raving lunatic. Anger does that to a lot of us. We can turn from Dr. Bruce Banner into the Incredible Hulk in the blink of an eye. 

What about you? What kind of predator are you when you get mad? Are you the type to rally all of your friends and family to your side and to gang up on someone? When you get angry, do you lay in wait and then just come out with a quick, deadly strike or do you just run in and show your rage right away? 

Or maybe you are one of the worst predators to deal with of all when you are totally mad, the type that pretends everything is okay, and they aren't mad at you at all but is just waiting for the perfect time to ruin your life. So much anger in the world, and so many different types of predators. Which one are you most like when you are mad?
