v   Is overly sensitive or

v   Extremely insensitive

v   Moody

v   Attacking

v   Judgmental

v   Impulsive

v   Critical

v   A strong sense of entitlement

If we take a combine these traits with idea of arguing here is what we come up with:

Under the pressure someone who is insecure when in an argument will either be quick to withdraw and shut down or attack back.

Someone who is angry when they are under pressure will go from “0” to “60” when they are arguing and then there is no dealing with them. Someone who is moody may well be pushed into a bad mood as a result of an argument.

Someone who is judgmental, impulsive, and crucial will take those traits into high gear and arguments will turn ugly very quickly.
