This is usually an aggressive stance where we are sure that our perspective is perfect and whatever others have to say against it is wrong.

This usually happens when you are dealing with a person with whom you do not have a lot of similar tastes. Annoyance can come in to play when you are not able to accept differences in individuals you deal with.

It can be a warning sign for unexpected situations, failures or obstacles. Fear should not be thought of as something that displays weakness. Fear is what gets you ready for the actual situation with the right emotion. Analyzing the reason for your fear and acting upon the source is what is expected from us.
