I checked "other" so I better post.

I am sensitive to emotionally charged environments. If the emotions are going full tilt, I'm looking for an exit.

Its like other people's emotions interferes with my ability to perceive the situation and therefore interferes with my abitility to process things rationally. I don't even have to be involved in the situation. The wife and I were at a restaurant once and the people a few tables over were having a dispute. Even though we could not hear what they were arguing about, I felt my temper rise to the point that I lost my appetite and had to leave the restaurant shortly after the manager made the couple leave. Fortunately for me, my wife understands and accept that these things happen with me and can often spot the changes in me before I can.
