    Anger and Hate as motivation

    Hi everyone, I've been reading a few articles about how some people use anger and hate as a motivator in life. Two questions. One, which MBTI type or group ie SP, NT etc do you think is most likely to use anger and hate as a driver towards a goal. Two, have you ever used this tactic before and if you have, what were the end outcome with this approach?

    I often use anger as a motivator. I work better when my energy comes from my gut. I don't motivate others in this way, only myself. When I'm out of energy, anger can get me that small boost that makes me push through with something. "I will manage."

    Um, any type except NF?

    I used to use anger as a great motivator. Like I would not let other people win or defeat me. Especially between about 18-22 anger was a great motivator for me to improve myself and go live my life the way I wanted to.

    NT might be more likely to use "hate," though I know an ISTJ who used to say that "haters" make him "strong." Whatever that means.

    Hehe I think every type uses anger as motivation. It's totally human.

    Hate and anger only motivates me to not give a damn about things that I'm usually over sensitive about. I don't think it's a good way to succeed in life though.

    I could see anger as a great motivator in just about anyone.

    It's worked for me at the cost of other people thinking I have a mental problem.

    Any type of strong emotion can be a powerful motivational tool in pretty much anyone. I think the difference is in how they channel it.

    I see anger or hate working for short term goals. I have a short temper, but it doesn't last long enough for me to reach my long term goals. Also, it's not healthy to be angry or hateful for a long time. You might get health complications like hypertension, stress and depression, or even a total mental breakdown.

    I've never understood hate as a motivition. It just takes too much energy for me to hate. It's exhausting. When I'm angry its more often than not at myself; that kind of tones down any motivational use it could have. However, I can think of a few times anger was my motivation.
