Anger comes from the Norse word ‘angr’, meaning trouble. It’s only human nature to get angry from time to time, but of course there are degrees. It can be anything from mild displeasure to someone lashing out because they have ‘lost it’.

Most of us can control our anger, not allowing it to get out of hand.

In real terms it means anger is a physiological and psychological response to a perceived threat of injury, etc., to oneself or their loved ones and the threat can real or imagined.

Anger can be demonstrated either physically or by verbally lashing out at the perpetrator of the perceived threat or insult. In a more passive fashion, the person can sulk or show hostile reactions.

These are the physical symptoms experienced by someone very angry:

  • Raised blood pressure
