The reason we have shared this story on our blog is not to attract huge traffic from the web, but to appraise our readers about the possible extremes of anger. Human psychology and behavioral sciences have spent years of research in formulating effective therapies to control and modify human behavior.

We all face anger in our life at some point or the other. For some of us it is expressed as a shout out at a friend or family member, for some it means violence and destruction and for rare it means extreme violence and even murder! Anger is defined as an individual’s response to a threat or perception of threat against an individual or a group of individuals. It is often difficult for people in anger to control their emotions and these are often expressed in the form of aggression that involves harming or hurting others. The factors contributing towards anger or an aggressive reaction can be multi-faceted. It may be a result of behavioral, psychological, social, or situational factors. In this case, it is clearly a story of aggressive reaction resulting from psychological and situational factors.
What can be done to avoid it?
- You can join a psychotherapy course or therapy to learn how to manage anger.
- You should be aware that you have an intense aggressive behavior
- You should accept the fact that you need to control your anger.
