Some people get angry easier than others. And when those people get angry, they often can't control their emotions, such that they get too angry and do something violent.
It is like with a dog. You can tease some dogs, and they will growl at you. But others will quickly try to bite you. And some will even go out of control and try to kill you. Perhaps that type of dog has been teased too much.
With humans, some of having a temper is the nature of the person and some of it is upbringing. If there was a lot of violence in a person's upbringing, often he will have a quick and violent temper.
The thing is that you must learn to control and manage your temper. Otherwise you will do things you are sorry for and end up ruining your life. Every time you get angry, even just a little bit, kick yourself and say, "Don't do that. It's not worth it. Cool it."
You've got to remind yourself constantly to be cool and mellow and not let things bother you. The only person you should ever get mad at is yourself, if you're not doing as well as you should. If you learn to stay cool, you will be surprised how good things get. If someone hassles you or argues with you, figure that the person is just dumb and not worth losing your temper over.
I hope this gives you some ideas on handling your temper. Let me know how things turn out.
