    Are you the type of person who can shrug of just about anything, or the kind of person who takes things far to personally, or would you place yourself somewhere between the two extremes?

    My personal philosophy has been that you get what you put out for the most part. As for those who try to bring you down, if they are not a part of your life, then their opinion really doesn't matter.

    Non Illegitimi Carborundum - don't let the bastards grind you down.

    It really depends on the mood I'm in. Bit in most cases I can brush off stuff that tick me off.

    Lol!! I think you forgot to read the first post...

    I do my best not to talk back to people who pissed me off because I've heard a couple of times that I can ridicule people on the spot when mad icon_redface.gif

    But I changed and learned to shut up and walk away (most of the times)

    Only 3...? lol

    To answer the OP's question. Since about a little more than half a year ago, I have learned to quickly analyze whether something is worth getting mad over or not. And I have come to realize that 9 times out of 10, it's not worth it. So, I can and do shrug off a lot of stuff that used to annoy or aggravate me. But yea, if it happens to be that 1 time out of 10 or somebody does something that I find completely inexcusable..the "happy icon_biggrin.gif" me, is quickly replaced by the "all that are in my way will feel my wrath icon_evil.gif" me lol.

    I'm very conscious of where other people are coming from, whether they're making a remark that is sarcastic fun, with the intention of making you laugh, or subtly nasty, to get in an insult.

    I tend to give back the same attitude (good or bad) that other people give me.

    I am striving to be less sensitive, but I am a touchy person. I hope that I am improving, though.

    I'm not so much touchy as narcissistic.

    Not touchy at all really. I'm usually the guy who's trying to calm everyone else down. That being said, I don't take any shit either.

    Actually it appears you are hard wired for how resilient you are...

    "Davidson has discovered that personality is composed of six basic emotional "styles," including resilience, self-awareness, and attention. Our emotional fingerprint results from where on the continuum of each style we fall. He explains the brain chemistry that underlies each style in order to give us a new model of the emotional brain..."

    A few things I've learned about taking criticism:

    Consider your critic and his personality.

    Some critics are just angry, immature people who love to find fault, bitch, whine and complain.

    Other peoples perceptions of you are not reality, unless you take them to heart. If you do see a criticism applies, take it as a gift and grow from it. Everything else can be forgotten. If you are taking every criticism to heart, you're doing it wrong. If you are ignoring all criticism, you are REALLY doing it wrong!

    I used to be "touchy" because criticism was all I knew. My parents didn't speak praise, and I didn't recognize it when I heard it outside in the world. I had to praise myself and accept what was good in me. I still struggle with it. THE INNER CRITIC CAN BE THE WORST.

    If RJ doesn't toughen you up...

    My back can hold a lot of straw. But things can turn ugly when i've been asked to hold one blade too many.

    Let's just say that 40 mg of Celexa is a great help.

    So is not working if I can just learn how to redirect myself.

    I thought this topic was about something else. icon_confused.gif

    I think I'm difficult to rile up. I use to be very hot tempered. I probably have a few buttons that can be pushed, but I'm not going to tell you what those are.

    There are some very touchy people on this site. I tend to avoid them because my smartassy sense of humor doesn't go over well.

    WHAT? ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ME? HOW DARE YOU ACCUSE ME OF BEING TOUCHY!!! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? DO YOU WANNA TO BE THE LATEST PERSON ON MY IGNORE LIST?

    I'm very easy going. Very little gets me riled up.

    I don't take things personally and can shrug off most stuff.

    Usually if people give me shit I can see through it and I just feel sorry for them more than anything else because it's often about them, not me personally.

    I WAS very touchy... like.. anything could shatter me... but that changed when I realized you can't change the actions of others no matter how hard you try.

    see.. i was more upset that people were allowed to get away with harsh things rather than the actual harsh things themselves.

    But I dont care anymore.. I try to be the person I want to see around me.

    Eh a lot of times I don't see the point in getting mad because it usually doesn't solve anything.

    You can either try and make things better, accept the consequence of change, or leave it all behind.

    Either way, finding a positive outlet is the only thing I look for! icon_cool.gif

    Not touchy at all. I'm thankful for that natural dispostion. It means I have very few hangups.
