ARE YOU LOSING IT?
Recognize Your Rage
Workers vent their anger in three different ways, says anger therapist Mike Fisher.
This type of person vents on inanimate objects, kicking the photocopier or slamming doors for example. They have trained themselves not to vent at other people -- but they don't realize the effect they are having on those around them.
if you are one of these, you scream and shout and hurl abuse. These people are often in management, so they get away with it.
These don't scream and kick but vent their feelings by spending their days on Twitter or Facebook, stealing stationery and crying off work early.
A former colleague, who was otherwise a lovely person, threw his phone across the room all the time, if even the smallest thing went wrong. So why do gentle characters turn into the Incredible Hulk at their desk? A big factor is the sheer number of hours we are at work. We spend more time with our colleagues than our family, so of course colleagues' ways are going to grate. Endlessly ringing phones or crashing internet systems add to the torture. And some people arrive at work after looking after babies all night or having had a blazing row with their partner. So it's no surprise the office can be a hotbed of tension.
