تنک مزاج

Definition from own experience or research:
رات اس تنک مزاج سے کچھ بات بڑھ گئ، اٹھ کر جو وہ گیا تو عجب رات بڑھ گئ ۔
خواجہ احسن اللہ

Example sentence(s):
  • رات اس تنک مزاج سے کچھ بات بڑھ گئ، اٹھ کر جو وہ گیا تو عجب رات بڑھ گئ ۔ خواجہ احسن اللہ - Ateequr Rahman  
  • تنک مزاج ہیں مگر سرشت انک نیک ہے، نہ ضد کہو نہ ہٹ کہو ذری سی ان میں ٹیک ہے۔ شوق قدوائ - Ateequr Rahman  
  • فلاں جناب تنک مزاج واقع ہوے ہیں، ذرا سی بات پہ دلگیر ہو جاتے ہیں۔ - Ateequr Rahman  

The term means some body who is easity irritated or offended, and there are many words in Urdu for that, like tund mizaj, Zood ranj, Sariul Ghazab, aur Kaghaz ka bana hua hona, that means if some body touches them they are easily harmed, like that, and since every word has its own usage and context or say temperature, so context is very important.
