Don't be fooled with people whom seemingly possesses mild temper, as certain insult turned out causing them releasing an apocalyptic and fiery temper no matter how good they able to maintain the composures!
Berserk Button is the term about the part of an individual's personality where they would lashed out (usually violently) should proper insult inflicted on them. It doesn't matter how good they maintain their temper, as there would be some limitations in the situation where they need to maintain their patience or composure over the situation that potentially provoke them to release their anger. The trigger for them to release their wrath could be anything, from weight issues, family, or even something that looked trivial in your point of view.
Once triggered, they would instantly goes ballistic, flying into a screaming, frothing, and sometimes apocalyptic wrath where-should their ballistic rage was on extreme level-it would be wise to stay out of their way until their mood swings surpass and it becomes safe to apologize to them. Sometimes, the berserk button can be hit to break down a door, fight a villain, or give a person courage.
