e·mo·tion·al il·lit·er·a·cy
Adjective
When a person gets so frustrated or upset with someone/thing that they allow their emotions to control the way they speak or type.

Symptoms: stuttering, improper grammar or excessive spelling errors

Not to be mistaken with Emotional Literacy - the concept proposed by the psychotherapist Claude Steiner in the 1970s that refers to the ability to understand emotions, listen to others and empathize with their emotional states, as well as express emotions in a productive way.

Frodo:"I can't stand riding to work with Tony Stark, his road rage is so bad that I can't understand what he's yelling half of the time"
Shaq:"I understand what you mean, I find his emotional illiteracy to be quite amusing on some of the rides home"

(Emotionally Illiterate)
*Two strangers are arguing on an online post*
"How do you expect me to have an argument like an adult when you're so emotionally illiterate that I can't understand what you're saying?"

Selective Illiteracy Syndrome is a serious mental/moral impairment which afflicts individuals who disagree with something but do not examine the presented evidence in support of what they differ with -not because they can’t read- they habitually choose to NOT honestly read out of an irrational paralysing fear that those they disagree with just might be right!

Usually employed by contrarians, internet atheists, trolls and the lazy.
C: You said you wanted proof for my position. Here is all the verifiable evidence that I could find.

A: You're still wrong!

C: How exactly?

A: ....um, reasons.

C: You never read it did you? And I suppose you never intend to either, simply because you don't WANT it to be true!. So...How long have you been suffering from Selective Illiteracy Syndrome?
