As a young man, Steve Jobs was well-known for his temper tantrums. They got him moved to the night shift at Atari; according to early Apple employee Andy Hertzfield, "his spontaneous temper tantrums and his proclivity to tell everyone exactly what he thought" cowed and alienated co-workers. One of the most petty -- but apparently representative -- fits he threw involved the color of the vans owned by NeXT. But Jobs reportedly mellowed a bit as he got older, or at least got better at keeping his spontaneous outbursts of anger short and to the point rather than letting them become full-on blowups.
