Take away the emotional mayhem associated with anger and rage. Forget about the mental health roller-coaster anger take us on. Now only focus on what anger is causing: not the embittered feelings fury provokes.
Think about what affect anger can do to us? No, not the blowing up and boiling over part. The toll on our physical health is shocking. It is shameful, horrifyingly appalling…and shocking enough to make me scream bloody murder!
Anger and or rage, it’s connected to physical problems even chronic illness such as stress, high blood pressure, respiratory trouble, affects the liver and the pancreas, and not to mention all the digestive problems linked to anger.
Have you ever gotten so mad and full of exasperation your brain disconnects – when we lose thought and we don’t think clearly?
Anger encompasses many different levels and dimensions. Ephrem Fernandez from the University of Texas at San Antonio defined the six bipolar dimensions and anchors of anger expression.
According to Professor Ephrem Fernandez’s psychological research (PDF), anger can be categorized according to six bipolar dimensions of expression. These include:
The direction of anger (internal vs external)
The anger reaction (retaliatory vs resistant)
The mode of anger (physical vs verbal)
Anger impulsivity (controlled vs uncontrolled) Objective of anger (restorative vs punitive)
