  • For the most part I am pretty level headed, I surely aim to get across what I need and want to say and normally do, I am not afraid to speak my mind or stand up for myself, I normally contain myself anger wise, it takes alot for me to literally blow a fuse.

  • I generally try to avoid situations that I feel will involve confrontation, but if I am suddenly stuck in the middle of one, I have no problem holding my own.

  • It really depends on the issue, and whether or not it's worth arguing over! When it comes to my reputation/character or my children...I will handle the confrontation head on! :o)

    Do you have any specifics/hypotheticals?!

  • it depends n the person & situation. I have broken out into angry sweats, i have kept cool, i have cried, i have felt embarrassed, I've been scared, i have been very anxious & shaky to admit what was really on my mind...

    the person & the subject matter has a lot to do with how i react.

  • I have to do confrontation often as part of my job. So I guess I would say pretty well.

  • Pretty well, I am not one to avoid a confrontation, I just don't seek them out.

  • Depends on the situation. If its a situation that has the potential of turning physical I will not engage. If its just going to be a shouting match or a match of wills/intelligence/point making I'm all in. However that being typed...like most things for me MMOTD is what dictates the majority of my behaviors.

  • Not well ... way too non-confrontational .... avoid bad situations as much as possible ...but sometimes I let it build and build inside me til I become confrontational and blurt out my issues with a situation and really deal with it!
