The Exploder Personality

By: Mathew Baughman*

Today, we will discuss the Exploder personality type.

The Exploder is the type of person to shift drastically in their mood swings. They may seem calm then trail off on a wild rant as it seems to be out of nowhere. They will often use vulgar language and insulting terms as to make their opposition (you) feel inadequate.

Dana Kelly provides some tools for handling the Exploder personality:

  1. Let them voice their concerns and then try to solve the problem(s).
  2. Attempt to calm them down.
  3. Listen to what they have to say and take them seriously.
  4. Find a private area where they can express their concerns with you, so they do not cause a seen.
