Anger, Thoughts, & Social Behavior

  • Pain alone is not enough to cause anger. Anger occurs when pain is combined with some anger-triggering thought.
  • Thoughts that can trigger anger include personal assessmentsassumptionsevaluations, orinterpretations of situations that makes people think that someone else is attempting (consciously or not) to hurt them.

In this sense, anger is a social emotion; You always have a target that your anger is directed against (even if that target is yourself). Feelings of pain, combined with anger-triggering thoughts motivate you to take action, face threats and defend yourself by striking out against the target you think is causing you pain.
