spirited lad

I'm reading the biography of the mysterious St Joseph of Copertino (the "flying" saint).
Well, there is a sentence I'm not sure to understand about his childhood:
"As a child, Joseph was a spirited lad and inclined to anger."
What shall I understand here?
"Enfant, Joseph était un gamin spirituel prompt à se mettre en colère"?

Merci d'avance!
