What causes irritability?

Irritability is a common emotional state that affects many people daily. It is defined as a state of being annoyed easily, often, and by little things. The intensity of this state can vary from person to person, but it is usually mild and short-lived. However, for some people, this state can last for weeks and even months. What causes this? Studies have suggested that irritability is caused by a strong desire to be “right” or “justified” in one’s feelings. When you feel irritated, you may believe that you are being treated unfairly or unjustly. Several things can trigger this desire to be “right” or “justified”.

Signs of agitation

As you might expect, people who are prone to bouts of agitation will often show signs of being agitated, such as increased anxiety, sweating, rapid speech, and increased muscle tension.

If you notice you are becoming more impatient, it might be a good idea to take a step back and try to identify the cause of your irritation.
