Like seriously, most people have really misunderstood the meaning of one having a temper (hot temper). When we say one is hot tempered, it doesn’t mean he or she gets angry quickly, as all humans do get angry as quick as they are been offended.
Referring to one as hot tempered, just simply means that they quickly react immediately after been offended (the key word here is the quick reaction) that’s why someone with such attitude is tagged hot tempered or better said- they got temper.
