    @Seriel, what irritates you most in others is what you subconsciously want to do yourself (a side of you)

    So you are saying if I am irritated by someone being mad - it's because I want to be mad? If I am irritated by someone being anxious it's because I want to be anxious?

    I'll answer the previous question first. A part of you might be envious, would like to philosophize but don't have the patience, the study, the qualities to do so, but you don't consciously admit it.

    If you are irritated by an anxious person it is because a part of you is anxious, but you fight the anxiety by displaying the opposite attitude, overconfidence, arrogance etc.

    Okay I know what irritates me but how do I extrapolate this to tell me things about myself? I don't understand how I'm supposed to make that connection.
