Most of the time quiet people don't want trouble and avoid it if they can. But when they can't, all of the crap they have taken from other people resurfaces in their mind and they explode. This makes them go overboard and a lot more dangerous because all of their bottled up anger is finally released and who knows what they might do.

I'd rather piss someone off who shows their anger and frustration regularly then piss someone off who is quiet and hardly ever seems mad.

Been there and done that!

I've seen it myself before. When some loudmouthed smartass got in one of my quiet friend's face one time, my friend just smiled and nodded and turned to walk away. When the loudmouth grabbed my friend by the back of his shirt and "tried" to turn him around, my ex Air Force trained buddy backheaded him in his redneck nose and he ran away screaming like the little bitch that he was. Laughed my ass off. My quiet friend just shrugged and smiled. Don't f$&k with quiet, reserved people. You can get some noise that you don't want. This happened about 30 years ago. Kind of miss those times!

Yes, because you never know what they're thinking or how they will react.

The loudmouth should've been grateful it was just a wing wiper he tangled with, and not a grunt or marine. And in this day & age, lot of combat vets walking around, quietly enduring PTSD, waiting for the wrong douche to trigger a flashback. Then again, might be a good learning experience for the douches of the world...

I do agree with "yep" to a degree, but it's still kind of misleading.

I would like to put an emphases on the fact that many of them enjoy being quiet and reserved - and really do try to avoid conflict. But "yep" is correct, when someone sets them off, they don't just pop - they go boom.

But quiet people aren't actively dangerous; most are very kind and sweet.

It's the loud-mouthed smartasses that Earl described that are the most 'actively' dangerous; in his story the quiet one tried to walk away-doing the right thing-and it was the other who pushed the situation too far.

So no, I would ultimately have to disagree; the quiet ones are only the most dangerous if you're the one who's pushing them past their tipping point.:) To everyone else they're a bucket of fun and a best friend anyone could ask for.

How about you just not screw with anyone, and try to live a good and successful life making people proud of you?

And remember always, anyone, and I mean anyone, can be dangerous in the right situation. Especially if backed into a corner.

Anybody can be dangerous. Its just that the loud mouthed would react immediately and a quiet person would take some time to react but we cant really say whod turn out to be more dangerous. I think quiet people are foxy. Theyre more cunning than the loud types. Theyre not genuine cuz theyd never come to you to clarify things or find a solution. Theyd constantly keep judging you and keep keeping things inside their heart. How will anyone ever know about how hurt the other person is if the other person doesnt care to express. How will you understand somebody exploding on you when you dont even know their reasons. They can become best of friends and are fun cuz its easier to control such people in friendships. Such people are usually boring and laidback to try out something exciting like a relationship thats why for such people friendship is all they have and it matters to them a lot. They can easily be controlled. Theyre cowards and rarely take stand for things and when they do its usually too late.

I have been pushed around for years and just took it all in but eventually someone pushed mr past my breaking point after I lost my mom to cancer and I just exploded at him and beat the unholy shit out of the poor guy
My rage consumed me and I couldn't pull it back in as a result he was badly beaten
I felt remorse after wards but if he just left me a lone that would not have happened but quiet people will be the nicest and kindest people you will ever meet

quiet, loud, doesn't matter. without some deeper knowledge of a person's situation, experience, armament and capabilities, there's no way to know.

some loud, obnoxious person might be all talk and trying to seem more than they are, while a quiet, troubled person - though slow to provoke - will crack and just start placing careful, well-aimed shots into people.

or the quiet one might be a thoughtful, well-balanced person intent on avoiding conflict, while the loud one is combative and spoiling for a fight. might be they're hyped up on drugs or roid-raging, and far more dangerous because of it.

it takes more than guesswork, surface signs and gut feelings to assess a person's threat level. everyone's different.
oh yeah

It's the quiet ones who are contemplating revenge. Quiet people tend to be more methodical and precise. Now, this is not absolute. There are quiet idiots just like there are there are loud ones. It's the quiet, educated person with purposeful reasons to retaliate that you need to tip toe around.

I am kind of a quiet person but normaly nice its mostly the load kind of people who set off quit people because they have no idea what the quit people are thinking.

The only way to understand someone who is quiet is to either be a close friend or family to be honest.
