Three Different Types of Anger

Can't take it anymore

Rage – anger

Rage is the expression of violent, uncontrolled anger. Rage is an outward expression of anger and can result in a visible, often destructive, explosion. If Lucille (in example 1) took the plate she had in her hand and threw it against the wall causing it to break into pieces as a reaction to her husband’s suggestion, this behavior would exhibit rage.

Resentment – anger

Resentment is the feeling of anger directed towards a person or object which is suppressed and kept inside. It is a feeling which smolders and feels uncomfortable, and can possibly create more physiological and psychological damage. If John (in example 4) listened to his mother’s comment but did not respond by explaining the reality to her, he would harbor feelings of resentment.

Indignation – anger

Indignation is regarded as appropriate, controlled, positive type of anger. Though Susan felt like screaming when the doctor’s office canceled her appointment (in example 2), she calmly told the secretary she was disappointed but understood and rescheduled the appointment.

Anger can be combinations

The three types of anger (rage, resentment, and indignation) can occur separately or in combination, depending on the situation. With an understanding of the different types of anger, it may become easier to deal with situations which provoke these feelings. Anger can be very hard to manage often your anger is a part of you personality.
