Seen At 11: Adults Throwing Temper-Tantrums Could Be Suffering From Disorder
" People usually associate temper-tantrums with children, but adults are being caught now pitching a fit.
CBS2’s Dick Brennan reported that more and more adults are being caught on tape throwing temper-tantrums. They kick, scream, fall to the floor, and throw things — and it doesn’t take much to set them off.
Adults throwing tantrums are also being caught on video thanks to today’s technology. But could there be something more going on?
“Most of us are able to get angry, and express our frustration in a constructive way,” therapist Diane Kolodzinski said.
But for others, Kolodzinski said something as simple as spilled milk is literally enough to send them over the edge.
“They go zero to 100 really fast,” she said.
These adults who throw these temper-tantrums could be suffering from a condition called intermittent explosive disorder.
“The people who have this disorder cause a lot of suffering,” Dr. Igor Galynker, a psychiatrist, said. “They themselves suffer, and they make a lot of other people suffer when these people are subject to aggression.”
Galynker said as many as one in 20 people now suffer from the disorder.
“A person who has intermittent explosive disorder feel they don’t have control,” Galynker explained."
Ah yes, explosive Big Baby disorder, we here at Maddogslair always shortened it to Big Baby Tantrum. These are coddled, cosseted, pampered toddlers trapped in adult bodies. They have only the most rudimentary coping skills, and they are used to getting their way on everything.
"Experts said what differentiates the disorder from a bad temper is the disproportionate response.
“Yelling, screaming, throwing things, hitting the wall,” Kolodzinski detailed. “They could hit the other person or push them.”
Cursing at someone who cuts you off while driving is pretty typical, but chasing the car down and ramming it could be the behavior of someone suffering from the disorder.
One man, who started a blog about living with the disorder, said he was relieved to finally find out the root of his overreactions, and even more comforted to learn it’s treatable."
Oh dear! They don't even realize they are behaving badly? Hehehehehehehehehe. This is a parenting problem from toddlerhood.
The cure for bullies like Trigglypuff is to stand up to them. Anti-bully training session video below:
Trigglypuff: "Stop talking to us like children!"
Christina Hoff Sommers: "Stop acting like a child."
Brilliant! The reply was reasonable, non inflammatory, but put Trigglypuff in her place. Stand up to bullies.
