I have never really fought anyone before. I am a relatively calm and easygoing person. But sometimes i just find myself in need to get into a fight for absolutely no reason. No clue why happens. Of course i want to make it clear, this is something that u feel when not intoxicated. I have never acted on this and actually started a physical fight with anyone but maybe that in it self is the solution....get into a fight and get the crap beaten out of me and then i would never have that feeling again....right?

#2 Posted by FirebirdINF (275 posts) -

how about taking a boxing class at your local gym? Get the aggression out in a structured way? May not work if you are seeking something very specific, but it may have something to do with what is going on in your life. Psychology and stuff.

I once went to a doctor for fainting and he asked me if I have been stressed out or anxious because it turned out I was fainting from holding my breath. So things get connected in a weird way.

Never, I'm not a violent person. But if you are I recommend taking up a Martial Art class or as the user above me mentions Boxing or some other sport.

Yes, I feel that way just about everyday. I take that anger and use it to fuel my workouts.

#6 Posted by Wasara88 (332 posts) -

I noticed that i got some pent-up rage when i had to take a break from training,but i was just more irritated and had a shorter fuse, didn't actually get any urges to start wailing punches on someone.

I take fencing to deal with this. Sometimes punching the shit out of someone isn't enough, you really just want to stab them to death. I get to exercise that feeling with all the intensity but none of the danger, and I get college credit for it!

Sometimes this university has some nice upsides. :D

#8 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6396 posts) -

Nope, but we all feel pent up energy that we need to use so my usual remedy is a nice long run.

Change fencing to archery and this is my plan for next semester.

@FirebirdINF: @Hizang: while i have been thinking about doing martial arts and boxing...since forever, i want to make it clear that i am not raging, i was not angry, and im not looking to beat someone up just because. @Godlyawesomeguy said:

I think this covers what im trying to convey to you better, its just that in my mind i want to duke it out in like a sparring session (that could totally happen in a ring) but i never ever expect to act on it because it lasts like 5-10min or when ever i get distracted with something else. if i had to equate it too dragon ball z, i feel krillin level anger (lol just watched the team fourstar thing... ep29, those guys are amazing)

#12 Posted by gamefreak9 (2356 posts) -

I feel it every day :P. I used to act on it when I was younger but it doesn't really help... you just want more, so now I just ignore and keep begging someone initiates it first :P.

#13 Posted by phampire (284 posts) -

Nope, never started a fight but I have broken up a few.

#14 Posted by Muerthoz (347 posts) -

I wouldn't say that I get the urge to get into random fights but some people make me want to beat stupidity out of them. Never did anything about it since they outnumber me.

If this is a result of something experienced during your respective tour, it may be a symptom of PTSD

I think I might too. I'll have to get up early for it, but whatever, I'll be a motherfucking ranger. Next I'll have to get a pet.

I'm thinking... bear.

Every time I visit an elementary school, yes.

#18 Posted by Fasckira (62 posts) -

I used to feel like that but then I took up ice hockey. Not purely for the goon side of things, but just for the adrenaline and physical activity so I guess any physical contact sport will have a similar effect.

#21 Posted by Lunar_Aura (2779 posts) -

Yes. I play fighting games to combat the feeling. It feels cathartic, but what do I know?

#22 Posted by Little_Socrates (5675 posts) -

It's our own destructive tendencies, partially created by the American sense of "the world being our oyster" (at least, if you're white in America.) We like to take risks that have a chance of destroying something beautiful as a response to a capitalist system that tells us that money and things are better than starving happiness. Pent-up energy is potentially one way to look at it, but I think it's more likely that it's pent-up destructive tendency, either of the self or others. It's not sourced from anger, more from discontent.

But that could just be me. Well, not so much that first sentence, that one's Tim Wise's White Like Me. Or the second one, that one's obviously Fight Club, though at least there Palahniuk and Fincher agree that, while an understandable response, it's still bullshit. So I guess it's not just me.

#23 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6295 posts) -

Never randomly. However if I see someone that fucked me over out and about...Well, I'm at least gonna ask for my money back.

#24 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Go for a martial arts class as many suggested.
 
Get into one good fight and you'll be cured of this.
Or not, but then you should probably pursue a career in fighting.

Wouldn't getting your ass kicked just change it from a curiosity into a burning desire for revenge? haha

#27 Edited by N7 (3580 posts) -

Sometimes I feel antsy and angsty and just want to do something violent. I get a huge adrenalin rush and I just want to throw down. I don't even know why.
 
Of course, my krant came in and helped me kill a Thresher Maw so everything's alright now!
 
EDIT: Are you a Krogan too? We should meet up and rRHAAAWRHRHAHAHHARAWWWGRAAHAAAA.

#28 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

A couple of times. With myself.

#29 Posted by super2j (1666 posts) -

@MideonNViscera: not if i picked a random fight. How can i blame the guy for defending himself better then i can attack.

#30 Posted by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

No.

I take my pent up agression, and somehow channel it into eating Junk Food.

I'd say it's working out poorly, but that's a lie.

#31 Posted by mikethekilla (328 posts) -

Ever since I stopped doing Muay Thai I've been feeling this.

#33 Posted by RubberBabyBuggyBumpers (714 posts) -

i sometimes have a massive urge to punch a tapout and/or affliction shirt wearer whenever i make rare appearances at some local watering hole. instead, i sit back and let the dipshit tapout/affliction shirt wearer talk their way into a one sided ass beating all on their own. it's usually with a bouncer. after beating up the dip shit, the bouncer picks up the idiot and throws him out.

#34 Posted by HarlechQuinn (447 posts) -

Not any more as...

Or maybe I still feel to urge to get into a fight, but I won't give in the urge anymore. And nowadays there are way too many idiots with weapons so it won't be a "nice and fair" fight anyway. And before somebody gets the wrong impression I have never attacked somebody out of the blue or out of boredome, it was more of a "we were looking for fight, they were looking for a fight... so it was a perfect match" (the technical term would be "assault in mutual agreement", yes there is an actual clause for this...).

But as already mentioned in the introduction, this was a long time ago and... I am too old for this shit...

#35 Posted by punkxblaze (2968 posts) -

A lot of the time, yes. I actively train JiuJitsu, and my friends and I beat eachother up the rest of the time. An actual fight with someone wouldn't last long or be anywhere as fulfilling (on the street, anyway), because I would want to end it ASAP, not necessarily beat the guy's ass silly.

That's a vicious cycle though. Every time someone makes fun of your ridiculously tiny lady sword and bee keeper's mask you must have to run away and fence more.

#37 Posted by habster3 (3595 posts) -

Yeah, and I'm not even really that violent of a person. Except when provoked...

#38 Posted by crusader8463 (14419 posts) -

Not a caveman, so no. Only feel like that when someone really pisses me off, but now that I'm an adult and fighting means jail time I do my best to just walk away.

#39 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

No, because I can control my emotions and am not a manchild

#40 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

Sometimes. That's why I simply use my powers to create a clone of myself (there are various ways of doing this) and I face myself.

#41 Posted by 49th (2722 posts) -

Yeah somewhat. Even just to get my ass kicked.

I wouldn't go out of my way to fight with someone but if I was provoked I think I would want to fight them.

#42 Posted by Mirado (993 posts) -

@BiffMcBlumpkin: With a larger sword. :D

#43 Edited by LastNinja (281 posts) -

Once convinced some friends to start a fight club. Got my ass kicked and cracked some ribs... needless to say I have a different perspective now.

Pretty much. And even then, fighting for no reason is stupid. Fighting for any reason is kind of stupid too, unless it can't be avoided.

To the OP, Takes some martial arts classes to get the aggression out. Not only is it fun but it really helps keep you in shape too. Krav Maga is awesome
