The 5 styles of anger

  • By Team TDO

Here are some styles of anger that you should know about:

  1. Abrupt Anger:
    Have you seen a thunderstorm on a sunny day? Sudden anger zooms in from nowhere, blasts everything in sight and then disappears. Some people get angry like this, vent out the feelings and feel relieved.
  2. Anger Evasion:
    Avoiding anger or controlling the anger. Some people avoid anger and feel good and calm. They have problems, though. This can sometimes be harmful. Often the result is that they are walked over by others.
  3. Devious Anger:
    Anger sneaks in, does not let others know they are angry and the anger is expressed in other forms like forgetting things. They lose track of their own needs. They don't know what to do with their anger and this leads to boredom, frustration and unsatisfying relationships.
  4. Addictive Anger:
    The anger is much more than a bad habit - it provides emotional excitement in some people. Anger gives that "rush," and the emotional "high" to them. They feel alive and full of energy. But remember, addictions are inevitably painful and damaging and anger is no exception.
  5. Moral Anger:
    People get angry when others have broken some rule or behaved wrongly. People with this anger style feel outraged about what bad people are doing. They fail to understand that every individual is different.
