Anger - a Natural Emotion

Anger is one letter short of danger
Unknown

Anger is a natural and primary emotion that every human or non-human animal experiences from time to time as a basic functional or survival requirement. Modern psychologists even view anger as mature emotion because of its functional value for survival. Anger is seen as a healthy response to provocation, being wronged, criticized, frustrated or threatened. Yet, anger can compel motivation.

The degree of anger will vary from person to person depending upon their circumstances, from milder forms of annoyance, irritation, frustration or displeasure to the extremes of destructive aggression or blind rage. In extreme anger, one’s judgement and thinking may become impaired, resulting in a loss of objectivity so irrational or unreasonable verbal or physical actions ensue, causing harm to oneself or others.

Anger should be viewed as a natural response to a perceived threat or danger when the primordial part of the autonomic nervous system that elicits the flight, fight or freeze alarm response is triggered. Physical sensations of this alarm response can be experienced as anger-like feelings (fight), fear-like feelings (flight) or the inability to take any action (freeze).

The typical fight, flight or freeze response to a perceived danger is likely to trigger a series of dramatic changes in the body. As stress chemicals such as adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol are released into the bloodstream which causes the heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and other bodily processes to alter. Simultaneously primitive areas of the brain, designed to respond to threats, may form impaired or irrational thoughts and perceptions because the rational mind has little or no involvement in this process. This automatic response may compel and motivate people to do some extraordinary things, like jump over a wall, climb a tree or outrun a threat.

When a potential danger arises, anger is likely to become the predominant emotion and may supersede behaviour, cognition and physiology. This instinctive or primordial response is necessary to acquire the motivation and physical ability to defend and protect one’s territory, family, food resources, possessions or for self preservation.

In both instances of human or non-human animal behaviour, anger is most often expressed by obvious facial expressions or body language as a warning to perceived aggressors to retreat and stop threatening behaviour. Examples of this are making loud sounds or shouting, snarls or bearing of teeth, beating hands or clenched fists, eyes glaring and exaggerated physical postures to appear larger may all be adopted as clear visual warnings.

It is important to understand that although anger is actually intended as a protective mechanism, designed to keep one feeling safe and secure, anger is also a choice. Agreed, anger can also provide the motivation to act swiftly. But, does anger control you or do you control your anger?

This program offers many benefits to overcoming the clutches of anger, so that you're empowered and able to make more appropriate choices, thus controlling anger before anger controls you.
