We’ve all experienced anger and we all know the feeling.
Anger is usually characterized as a negative emotion like fear, disgust, shame, irritability, outrage, hostility which possibly may lead to violence. Depending on your temperament, you may describe anger as rage, aggression, violence, annoyance, displeasure, irritation, provoked or hostility.
There are many different reasons why you get angry. Sometimes you will have valid reasons and others not. You might become irritated by a person or a situation. There will be some instances where you may feel anger at something real or something you supposed in your mind and in that moment of rage, you may retaliate to either protect yourself or harm the other person/ situation. Many times, it’s the offense that is hard to get over. Try our online anger test to see how vital your condition is.

You might have the temperament that can bottle up your emotions. The side effects to that are physical illnesses caused to self. Some of the less extreme illnesses you may experience are ulcers, overeating, tiredness, constant aches or pains, or low immune system.
Many like to say that anger is evil and it’s a sin, but when we read the Bible, the Apostle Paul says,
