    "Open confession is good for the soul." - Scottish proverb

    This may look like a superficial poll, but I really want it to be effective in the sense that confession to one another is a good thing and we could also see that we are perhaps not alone in our shortcomings.

    Who knows....we might even start praying for each other and doing some repenting!

    Sounds like a temperament test. After all, temperament can often be measured by those things: (extroverts will tend to have a short fuse , introverts will stew on it internally and brood. relationship-oriented people will be more likely to forgive, and so on.

    Here's my new page breaking down the whole concept:

    I have a bad habit of ruthlessly taking people apart logically, piece-by-piece, not allowing them to save face. I can usually win the argument, but I lose the opportunity to win a brother or sister's fellowship.

    Stewing internally....that's me to a capital T!!!! It eventually makes me physically ill if it keeps on with no resolution. Truthfully, I am better than I used to be!

    I tend to stew on things internally period. I hit the internal replay and do it over and over and over. I don't get angry very often. BUT if I don't like the way a situation went, man, the stew goes on.

    Sometimes I have a very short fuse, but most of the time I stew - just like a slow cooker. I must learn to deal with anger in a better way. Either extreme is wrong and causes problems for me and for others.
