Anger

Anger is an emotion, a state of mind.

It is, basically, a natural human reaction to the obstacles in ongoing normal life of an individual.

Anger can be caused by both external and internal events.

One may be angry at a specific person or an event. Event can be internal as well as external. Anger may be caused by worrying or brooding about one’s personal problems. Memories of traumatic or enraging events can also trigger angry feelings.

Thus, anger arises when despite optimum use of resources, one fails to achieve desired results. One is desirable to get annoyed and angry when indiscipline prevails and subordinates do not work efficiently.

Anger is said to be a product of personal weaknesses. One gets angry when insulted, abused and criticized; his deficiencies are pointed out.

Anger also arises from avarice, selfishness.

Anger springs when a desire is not gratified.

Anger manifests from loving one’s own opinion, from desiring to be honored for being wiser and superior to everyone else.

Almost everyone from spiritual side has condemned anger as a vice or sin by sayings:

“Anger obstructs reason”.

“Anger clouds understanding.”

“Anger poisons the blood, nerves and whole system.”

“Blind wrath, bitterness of spirit and revengeful resentment, the three basic forms of intemperate anger, are therefore evil and contrary to order.”, quotes Don Schwager,” Blind wrath shuts the eyes of the spirit before they have been able to grasp the facts and to judge them; bitterness and resentment with a grim joy in negation, close their heart to the language of truth and love. They poison the heart like a festering ulcer. Also evil, of course, is all anger linked to unjust desire.”

This is despite the fact that the household, who has to earn the bread and butter by putting the hardest of labor is liable to react to failures and find a suitable way to reach destination. Strict discipline, hard work and acrid supervision are the means to success and an angry manager is able to deliver the good more comfortably. It is well said that anger is meant to mobilize us for accomplishing things that demand effort and to equip us to fight through obstacles in achieving the goal.

Scientists have been divided on the matter. Medical experts have observed physical effects of anger as increased heart rate, blood pressure and levels of adrenaline and noradrenaline. Some view anger as part of the fight or flight brain response to perceived threat of harm.  Some psychologists have also pointed out that an angry person can be very well mistaken because anger causes a loss in self-monitoring capacity and objective observability.

Modern psychologists view anger as a primary, natural and mature emotion experienced by all humans at time, and as something that has functional value for survival.

Anger can mobilize psychological resources for corrective action.

I can cite my personal example, here. I, always, have lot of work at my disposal. It is impossible for me to entertain guests if I intend to complete my work in time. Guests do visit and I have to attend them with the request to be brief and to the point. Some do oblige but most of them want me to have free time for conversation. I get irritated with most of them and have been titled Angry Wolf by the displeased.

Do I deserve their rage for being angry?

Thus, anger is necessary to complete our obligations and our spiritual leads should not be adhered in the matter. Uncontrolled anger, however, can negatively affect personal or social well-being. While many philosophers and writers have warned against the spontaneous and uncontrolled fits of anger, there has been disagreement over the intrinsic value of anger. Modern psychologists, in contrast to the early writers, have also pointed out the possible harmful effects of suppression of anger.

Displays of anger can be used as manipulation strategy for social influence.
