What do you folks think about this? Could apply to many different kinds of situations, so feel free to posit whatever context comes to mind for you.


Examples:

A is very jealous of B but does not want it to show. B bullies A.

A knows that B did something they were not supposed to. B starts rumor about A.

A is self-conscious about x but does not want people to know. A thinks B is critical of A and x. A criticizes B for x.

the first thing i thought of is getting searched by cops. most people are too scared to tell them to sod off if they've done nothing wrong so just submit to it. a good amount of the time i've got nothing to hide (or rather i know they wouldn't find anything) but that's not the point. If i haven't done anything wrong, and they ask to search me or my car, the answer is no every time. Followed by "am i under arrest or being detained? No? Good day sirs i'll be on my way then"

it's not about the search it's about the principle, im not about to waste my time and watch cops make a fukn mess of my shit just because they think i fit the profile of someone who may or may not have something illegal

Not true. Sometimes you have nothing to hide but the accusation is hurtful, as someone is saying that your character or morals are capable of doing something bad.

One of my ex-friends got really angry at me once because I was also friends with his ex. I was pretty angry because I respected them both, especially him to the extent that I'd never sleep with his ex, but my character being put into question as the kinda guy who'd sleep with a close friends ex is what annoyed me.

I disagree. Reacting in anger is just as likely when one is wrongfully accused, maligned or threatened.


I think that positing any specific reaction as a "given" in a situation is likely wrong, since humans aren't perfectly homogeneous in thought or action. We can perhaps make a generalization based on data of what the most common reaction is, but can't say with certainty that WILL be the reaction, regardless of the situation.

obviously but the human brain works in patterns and people anticipate given reactions for a whole slew of things. we often do not realize what we take for granted, so I thought this would foster a healthy discussion about anger, something we all face

idk A hates themselves, B starts rumour about C. A hears the rumour, hates themselves even more because they think rumour is about them. B tries to explain rumour is about C, damage is already done, A thinks why would you spread that about C, feels sorry for C, takes on C's burden as well as their own. Story of A's life.

And we get suspicious when people do not react in the fashion we've been conditioned to think they should.

Anger, like fear, love or etc. doesn't have an inherent value, that's only decided by the actions we take in response.

Sometimes you may get defensive because the person you are talking to has already made their decision about the veracity of your statement(s) and you know that it will be a long haul trying to convince that person (if you can) that you are not lying.


I guess it could be a defensive reaction to the prejudging.

agree. my wife gets caught up in this kind of thinking all the time. i have to hear this all the time, "oh you're mad cuz you're lying". no mad cuz for the umpteenth time i've been accused of something i didn't do with no actual proof that i did anything. yeah i get pissed. this seems to be more of a woman's logic thing if you ask me. i can't really remember the last time a guy said anything like that to me.

anger is a reaction triggered by many things so again it's tough to talk about in a general kind of way. much of it is personal and doesn't apply to others in more than a superficial way.

I also experienced this a lot in my previous relationship. She had trust issues with everyone but even knowing that I couldn't keep my cool all the time when the accusations started.


But yeah reacting in anger to things is entirely dependant on the person and the situation. I tend to keep my anger bottled up for years and then let it all out in one burst of rage. Last one wqs about 3 years ago, i dont think ive even raised my voice to someone since then, except maybe some minor family arguments. People who have seen me do this are always shocked because I'm always nice and chill to everyone, until I explode

Folks get angry for lots of reasons. "Hiding something" is simply one of many. I was driving on the freeway today and a guy swerved nearly hitting my truck and taking us both out. Probably texting. That made me angry with no hidden agenda.

Whats wrong with having something to hide?
I don't lead exactly a "normal" life and people often like to ridicule about it, so of course I prefer not to share some things with strangers.

Although I don't react in anger, I just try to steer the convo away

EUgh that sounds like work

But also I've never had to type out quantifiable logic (or any for that matter, everything I do is written out)
