    to show repeated reactions

    It's hard to understand the theme of this paragraph as there is no specific examples.
    What does "to show repeated reactions" mean? I may take an example like, through my experience at companies, farting loudly in public, going to work late or tardiness, saying annoying things to others, etc were all bothersome to others, which made them show same reactions. So do you think your annoying actions can trigger others' upset response, so you have to restrain yourself? Is that the subject?

    mo32)No matter where you work or what you do, becoming an expert in
    recognizing patterns of behavior an help you reduce the stress in your life by removing unnecessary problems with others. If you take a careful look at the people you work with, you will probably agree that most people are likely to show repeated reactions. In other words, we tend to be bothered by the same things, be annoyed by the same situations, and argue over the same sets of facts. Indeed, for most of us, our reactions to life, particularly stress, are fairly easy to guess.

    Re: to show repeated reactions

    In the second paragraph - where the phrase "show repeated actions" is used - it means people will react (respond to something you do or say) repeatedly in similar ways to similar things. Or that people who get angry at one type of comment, may also get angry at another type of comment - for example, if they like dogs and are angered by comments that show a bad attitude (or fear) toward dogs, they might be expected to also get angry to comments about disliking other animals.
    The phrase means you can expect similar upset responses from people when they are upset by words or actions - or similar friendly responses if they interpret your words or actions as friendly to them.
