What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?

You will get more detailed information when you take the online anger test above, but here's an idea of the different results you will get:

  • Severe--indicating the most extreme level of anger, with the potential for an extremely dangerous situation. If the anger test results put you at this level, you need to take immediate action to prevent things from getting worse. You need to make sure you're dealing with any low self esteem issues here, as well. At the very least, learn anger management techniques and practice them regularly.

  • anger test results
  • Serious--while not the most extreme level, this type of anger problem can be very destructive to your health and your relationships. You may be someone who is considered to have a bad temper. I encourage you take immediate action to keep things from getting worse.

  • Moderate--when the anger test rates you at this level, you're in the perfect position to take preventive action so that your problem does not escalate. You probably have some positive things going for you at this level, and I encourage you to take steps to better manage your anger.

  • Mild--While you probably wouldn't take this anger test if your anger was totally healthy, this rating indicates your anger is not that severe. You be the judge, however. If you think your anger is a problem, then it definitely is. Check out these resources to decide what to do next.

What Actions Can I Take Right Now?

  • If nothing else, use these Anger Management Techniques right now--or, if you want to stop the anger once and for all, anger control is what you need.

  • A lot of people's anger comes out behind the wheel. Are you dealing with road rage--your own or others?
  • Take more psychology tests at Psychology Today's Psych Tests.
  • Maybe this anger test doesn't apply to you--because you're not the angry one! Learn how to deal with angry people for your own good and theirs.
