I’seen a guy recently go into several rants like a child having a tantrum. I think he’s 40 something. He is easily agitated if he hears anything he doesn’t like. Various accusations, then rapid fire questions, what do you do, what do you do, …..up to 10 times or more. Won’t quiet down for someone to answer him. Asked why he’s angry he replies “I’m not angry, just telling it like it is”. Worrisome for a child but especially for an adult.

Is this a symptom of a particular condition?

Sounds like lower IQ coupled with plain old human emotion. Not everything is a "condition".

Just curious. He’s fairly extreme when he does this. Wonder if he needs meds.

It could be different things. Might be autism, personality disorder, PTSD or...who even knows.

It would be impossible to diagnose based on such limited information, nor would it be prudent. I will say that there were patients in the state hospital where I worked that exhibited similar behavior. It might be a good idea for this person to have a full checkup, including brain scan, to rule out a few possible causes. The easy triggering is concerning.

Why does it matter? Are you the one to take him to get the meds? If not, just avoid him and don't worry about it. Sitting smug in your corner knowing "there's something wrong with him" but not doing anything about it is... rather pointless.

A diagnosis could help as well as the response to him. It should be consistent. Ignoring him is one option. Ignoring that particular behavior is another but takes time. I would wait until he stops repeating himself and then answer. If you need his cooperation then you will probably have to be patient.

What's it to you? Move along. It's none of your business.
