For the Theory of Balanceology, anger is identified as one of the five core emotions: the others being fear, sadness, jealousy, and happiness. Anger is a spontaneous response to endangerment and involves the neurotransmitter adrenaline. The anger response has some overlap with a fear reaction and being aggrieved. That is, anger can also have a fight-or-flight component to it because it is a triggering device for incoming threat(s). However, hyper-vigilant, hyper-charged, and hyper-paced excessive anger (rage) can get us into a lot of trouble. Disproportionate anger can get in the way of meeting needs —-> especially our Belonging-Needs. Anger can easily lead to retaliation. Retributional anger is about ire, wrath, fury, and being enraged. Explosive anger with its adrenaline surge can constrict blood vessels, raise blood pressure, bring on headaches, and even lead to a stroke or heart attack. Physiological reactions to eruptive rage can linger for two hours after the initial rage episode. Sometimes it is helpful to recall when an anger moment evolved into a rage moment and try to flexibly accommodate and contain such future happenings.
