More commonly known as I.A.S., those who are afflicted with Intermittent Asshole Syndrome are known mainly by their lack of a filter between the things they think, and what actually comes out of their mouths. I.A.S. is in the "Foot in Mouth Spectrum" of disorders and is highly contagious.

Once encountered, I.A.S. can take weeks or months to become evident or it may have acute onset, taking only moments. Sufferers are cynical, critical and vindictive on an intermittent basis. The sydrome is fairly common among management personnel and security and law enforcement officers. Intermittent Assholes are generally very likeable, fun-loving and sweet people. Alcohol typically intensifies symptoms. Some people with I.A.S. believe themselves to be very funny, and infact some truly are. Contact with customers or the public in general tends to exacerbate symptoms and increase the frequency and intensity of outbreaks.

True sociopathic behavior is not associated with I.A.S..

Treatment is still in development.

Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED) is a mood disorder commonly misdiagnosed as Bipolar. Characterized by illogical, over the top bursts of anger and rage. Episodes of this often end in legal problems due to the intensity of the rage. Common, and effective treatments for this disorder include mood stabilizer medication, self reflection and counseling. Breaking an episode down into parts helps identify triggers and the emotion that the anger overshadowed. Bipolar medications don’t often help to control the anger, just the frequency of the mood swings into a manic state, where anger prevails. Identifying triggers, such as a toxic influence, is very effective in managing the condition.
My doctor diagnosed me with Intermittent Explosive Disorder. He said my statement “Anger is my primary emotion” urged him to double check my previous bipolar diagnoses.
