Behavioral Anger

 Behavioral anger is the type of anger, which results to people’s aggressive and cruel actions. This results TO hurting other people intentionally with OR without reason or purpose.

Judgmental Anger

 Judgmental anger is the  type of anger that makes people  feel uneasy or may cause lost of confidence. People who express this anger ends up making other people feel worthless and weak.

Volatile Anger

Perhaps the most unexpected type of anger is the volatile one. The English word “volatile” means temporary. Thus, this type of anger leads one person into expressing calm and peace in one minute and end up in a full rage (or extreme anger), the following minute. This happens without actual cause or reason, making it really worrisome.
