How Well Do You Really Understand Anger? Take the Quiz!

posted by Linda Mintle

angerbn2Tony insisted he doesn’t have an anger problem. Yet, by all accounts, people say he does. I asked Tony to answer these 10 questions. After taking the quiz and talking with me, he changed his mind.

See how well you do at understanding anger. Answer True or False to each question.

1) As long as I don’t look or sound angry, I am not.

2) If I ignore anger long enough, it will go away.

3) If I punch something or throw something, I will feel less angry.

4) Anger is shameful and not part of a healthy person.

5) It is OK to keep the peace. That is what God wants.

6) If I express anger, my relationships will be in danger.

7) Women don’t get angry, just upset.

8) Christians should not get angry.

9) God understands that sometimes I just lose control.

10) As long as I didn’t mean to get angry, it is OK.

 

If you answered TRUE to any of these questions, you need to rethink what you know about anger. All the answers are FALSE.
