Hot-tempered Italians and Spanish live nearly two years longer than the ‘stiff-upper lip’ English, researchers claim.

Scientists found that being fiery and expressing negative emotions is the key to long-lasting good health.

In contrast, the British characteristic of self-restraint can have serious repercussions for physical and mental well-being.

I would think that depends on how the hot temper manifests itself and if there's other people around at the time.

νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

Lol not in some of the places I lived, hot temper is a good way to get yourself a trip to the hospital, prison or even killed. Pretty much balances out that two years difference if you ask me.

Trying to find the actual study because the article seems a tad bit wrong (well over exaggerated)

IMO: the Italians and Spanish probably eat healthier, leading to their 'nearly two years' longer lifespan. (I've eaten English cuisine.)

BTW: Expressing your temper is just that, expressing your temper. It's also known as being a dick. I eat the bad feelings that I have, regurgitate them, then deal with them at a later date, when I'm calm, cool and collected. :)

Edit: In case you're curious, or care, I'm a Canadian. :)

They need to do a study on two different groups.  One group that uses the shot gun approach to anger, the other, those who use their anger to speak and get things done.

Unless you want to let your emotions loose by shooting up a school or a mall Somehow I don''t think they'll be living for very long after that.

Passive agression is often taught when young, then they explode over time.  That is not healthy, neither is shot gun approach to anger (as mark stated above), when everyone gets it, but speaking out when angry is healthy, as long as it deals with a certain situation.  If not, stress only builds....I speak from experience.

If you must have  finale absolute answers, then become an  hard nosed atheist or a fundie of any religion, both seem to be black and white thinkers, and have only contempt for those who think differently.
