Anger is such a common human emotion that people experience it on a regular basis. Some people feel it on a daily basis, others not quite as often. However, despite the negative connotations this emotion usually gets, it’s just it, just a human emotion. It’s not something inherently evil or shameful. We all do experience it, the only difference is how we process and express this emotion. 

Guess what! Anger can be expressed in a healthy way! Anger management issues as we understand them are just unhealthy and detrimental mechanisms of expressing anger. 

Do you suppose you have anger issues? If you have at least a tiny inkling that you do, let’s check it in this quick quiz! 
This anger test will determine your usual type of anger and its expression. And there are quite a few of them. Fancy a look? 

Types of Anger

The scientific basis of this quiz lies in the work of professor Ephrem Fernandez and their the psychological research that differentials 6 main types of anger in people. 

  • Chronic anger: This involves a persistent pattern of anger that lasts for extended periods. Individuals with chronic anger may have a generally irritable or angry disposition, and their anger can be triggered by minor incidents or frustrations.
  • Passive-aggressive anger: This type of anger is characterised by indirect expression of anger. Individuals may appear outwardly calm or agreeable but express their anger indirectly through subtle behaviours such as sarcasm, backhanded compliments, or intentionally withholding information.
  • Explosive behavioural anger: Explosive anger is characterised by intense, sudden outbursts of anger that may be disproportionate to the triggering event. These episodes may involve yelling, physical aggression, or destruction of property. This type of anger issue often involves attacking others verbally through yelling, shouting, or using offensive language.
  • Anger turned inward (self-directed anger): This type of anger involves directing anger towards oneself. Individuals may blame themselves excessively, engage in self-critical thoughts, or engage in self-destructive behaviours as a way of expressing anger or self-punishment.
  • Assertive Anger: This refers to the ability to express anger in a direct and respectful manner while maintaining self-control and considering the rights and boundaries of others. It involves effectively communicating one's feelings, needs, and concerns without resorting to aggression or passive behavior.
  • Retaliatory Anger: Retaliatory anger refers to the expression of anger as a response to perceived harm, offense, or provocation. It involves a desire for retribution or payback towards the person believed to be responsible for the anger-inducing situation.
