Anger is a Primitive Emotion

Anger is a feeling of displeasure, which usually shows itself in a desire to fight back at the supposed cause. It is accompained by physical changes in the body. When we are angry, our pulse may become more rapid, our blood pressure may rise, adrenaline will enter the bloodstream, and muscles may become tense. The combination of angry feelings and physical arousal often propel people into action. All too often, people act out violently or aggressively as a result of their anger. Hence, in anger management/executive coaching sessions, we encourage the client to talk about his or her angry feelings rather than acting upon them.
