It's an emotional intelligence attribute that keeps you in check when you feel like popping off or making a rash decision. It's the delay of gratification; anger is a form of gratification. It feels good to burst but rarely works when it's displayed so emotionally as with the mad purser. Impulse control and all that goes with the lack of it - rash decisions, rage, anger, passive-aggressive behavior, "needing" something right now - all threaten to derail relationships and careers. Each one has a flash point, but all can and should practice slowing down when one is feeling emotional, take some time and then respond. Whatever you do, if you feel like showing your anger, bite it.
