Note 32

People get angry according to five situations: arrogance, weakness, ignorance, modeling, and psychophysical pressures. Arrogant people consider it their right to be angry: they put on a show of anger so that they remind themselves that they are masters. The weak get angry because they can’t decisively do anything tangible about a situation: their anger allows them to put on a show that at least they are doing something; the ignorant get angry because they see the world through a very limited frame of reference: accordingly whatever they see or experience annoys and angers them; some people whom we can call the most average Joe/Janes (because they don’t want to deviate from social standards) don’t know how to respond to a situation: they model their behaviour on movies and soaps, and accordingly get angry as a learned behavior in unacceptable circumstances; majority of other people may succumb to anger under conditions of hunger, cold, lack of sleep, futility of efforts, repeat harassment, helplessness, lack of human empathy, financial and marital stress, illness and so forth. However, anger is a symptom, not a solution, and remedial and/or preventative solutions should be administered minus anger because anger clouds judgement and a clouded judgment cannot reach decisive solutions.
