Anger Issues Test, Tips, and Videos

Anger Issues Test ‘Reality Check’

Anger is an act of hostility directed at another person. It intends to hurt, intimidate, or push away the target of the anger. This intent does not necessarily express the true feelings of the angry person (how he or she feels when not angry). Rather, they express a primitive and temporary feeling triggered by a particular event.

When the person calms down, he or she may be very polite, kind, and accommodating. However, in the moment of anger, terrible things are said and done. Being angry is like being drunk — thinking is impaired!

Not a single person in the entire world would get married or develop a relationship with another person if he or she thought their partner would not treat him or her with kindness. Anger is the opposite of kindness. 

Do you need anger management?

Marriage is a voluntary institution; a married individual must continually choose to stay with his or her partner. When kindness and respect are abundant, staying together is easy.

When anger is present, the relationship becomes traumatized, and the two individuals avoid one another. When this happens, romance and sex stop, and separation and divorce are considered reasonable options.

Take this Anger Issues Test to learn how much anger you express and how it injures your relationship.

5 Anger Management Tips to Help You and Your Partner Stay Calm and Abuse-Free

1. Resist negatively judging your partner. Seek positive ways to interpret your partner’s behavior, so you will be less upset or not upset at all with what he or she has done.

2. Don’t keep a score. When you are upset with something your partner has done, “forgive and forget.” Don’t hold on to your negative judgment about your partner and angry feelings and use them as fuel to feed additional negative thoughts. This will only lead to additional anger and escalated conflict — you and your entire family will then suffer the consequences.

3. Be humble. Don’t react angrily when things don’t go your way. In essence, anger is trying to force things to be different than they are. Anger is an aggressive emotion to try and “force” things to be the way you want them to be. Whatever the situation is, try to accept as much as you can. “Acceptance” will eliminate anger and this will lead to peace and harmony with your partner.

4. Share and Negotiate. If there is something your partner does that you cannot “accept” as recommended above — and perhaps for a good reason — calmly and respectfully share your thoughts and when appropriate, negotiate a solution agreeable to both of you.

5. Stay calm. If you become angry, stop talking. Do something else until you calm down. When you are angry everyone around you is hurt including you, and the point you are trying to make is lost in the flood of negative emotions. Only try to explain yourself or get what you want when you are calm!
