I have my moments when I disagree or become contentious. When I am passionate about something, my emotions are in full force. This means that what I am trying to accomplish is priority and if I need to change my disposition to correct something that isn’t going well or to debate an issue that might hinder progress, it’s a good thing; as long as I am tactful and have my facts in order. We know what we are made of and what ignites our hot buttons. If you are in a relationship or a business partnership, communicate these things as well as all of your obvious emotions, so that the other person understands you. A boss will be more responsive if you tell them, “I am so passionate about XYZ, so if things don’t go well, I may be a little contentious”. A significant other will be more attentive and participative if you tell them…, “I have a bone to pick with you, XYZ didn’t go well. You know how passionate I am about this so I may be a little cranky”. Point being, you can exist in harmony as well as be productive even when you are dis-shelved about something. Ease of manner leads to positive results.
