I wonder if there's a correlation between being annoying and being annoyed easily or if they're entirely independent.

Re: um, funny...

you did take stat 390 right?!? :P

if you get annoyed easily you will be annoyed more often...

on another note, work on saving the text you write if you fuck something up, so that i don't have to retype shit :)

Re: um, funny...

that wasn't my question.

i'm wondering if people that ARE annoying get annoyed by OTHERS ....

Or, vice versa .... I get annoyed by everything, so am I am more annoying to other people?

Is annoyance more a one-way or two-way thing?

What the philosophers say...

Here's how I see it:

People who get annoyed easily are (usually) annoying because when they get annoyed (which is often) they (usually) express that to others. To express that you are annoyed is tantamount to complaining/bitching/whining. And it is usually the case that people who often complain/bitch/whine are annoying.

-- Socrates

P.S. I discusssed this with Plato. His fallacious conclusion was that "People who are easily annoyed are annoying because they have a stick up their ass."

Re: What the philosophers say...

Surely, they are not annoying, as they have in no way annoyed others.

I, personally, believe that there is an inverse correlation between the two. The more annoying someone is, the more oblivous they are to the annoying acts of others (if you think about, if they were so easily annoyed, they would eventually be annoyed by themselves and stop their annoying habits). So the more annoyed you are by others, the less annoying you are. or something like that :)

mm...well, they say anxiety is contagious. suddenly i'm picturing that scene towards the end of bambi, where the pheasants are hiding from hunters in the tall grass and the one gets more and more nervous and finally squawks and flies and gets shot. and the quiet ones just kept telling her to be quiet...i think there's a point, sorry if it doesn't seem so. : )

Annoyance released is inversely proportional to annoyance recieved.
a α a0-1
Every person has their own coefficient of annoyance, þ, which defines just how annoying they are compared to others around them.
A particularly annoying person will seem more annoying to someone with a lower coefficient of annoyance than someone with a higher coefficient of annoyance than them. They will get annoyed themselves if a person with an incredibly high coefficient of annoyance is around.

Too much physics thinking (for both of us) I think.
