Emotions (Anger) – Model answer

Here is a model answer for the Speaking part 3 question I gave you earlier.

  1. I think men and women value different things which can lead them to feel angry about different things. I think women are more likely to get angry about irresponsible behavior than men while men are more likely to lose their temper. However some issues could cause anger in the both of them such as violence.
  1. Anger is justified in many instances such as when we are on the receiving end of unreasonable behavior, when we are faced with crime, perhaps even small things such as someone being late without reason for a meeting. It depends on each individual what they perceive to be accepted standards of behavior and any deviation from it could reasonably evoke anger. Though simply because anger is justified should not be seen as a reason to act upon it and cause distress to others.
  1. An increase in your rate of heartbeat, trembling, sweating, clenching your jaws and grinding your teeth are physical symptoms of getting angry whereas mental symptoms include feelings of anxiety, stress in terms of more pressure and in some cases even sadness. Anger is universally known to be detrimental to both, physical and mental well-being.
  1. In my culture, people usually have verbal confrontations when they are angry. There is often yelling and swearing but very rarely does it lead to a physical altercation. However in the northern parts of my country, it is not uncommon to hear of people engaging in fights, especially in groups.
