The Anger Test

A test to determine how angry you may be.


Anger is one of the most unproductive, misunderstood, and difficult to control of the basic human emotions. Anger is actually an inner reaction to other emotions, or feelings, and is easier to show than to articulate: everyone gets angry. Feelings of vulnerability and powerlessness often cause the anger reaction - which, at least momentarily, makes us feel strong and in control. Angry "behaviors" are learned behaviors; and therefore can be "unlearned" - and replaced with healthier patterns of coping with life's trials and tribulations.

Anger can be an immediate reaction to a single event, or a response after numerous events. To deny or repress anger is unhealthy; but expressing it rashly, as we often do, may give temporary satisfaction - but ultimately will create negative consequences. We must understand where anger "comes from" if we are to change our angry responses and behaviors!

Usually anger will involve five general areas:
  • Our anger at others
  • Other's anger toward us
  • Our anger at ourselves
  • Residual anger from the past
  • Abstract anger

How Anger Test Works

You simply fill out the answers to all of the questions as honestly as you can.  We hope that this test will assist you in recognizing the nature and degree of anger in your life.

(NOTE: No information is kept so there is nothing that can be used for any other purpose.)

Complete honesty will provide a more accurate understanding of you and your partner's feelings and values and give you grounds for a healthy discussion of your relationship.
