Anger Test

Answering the following statements as best you can.

Score Key:

81-100– Your anger expression is likely getting you into serious trouble with others. It
would probably be worthwhile to seek professional help.

61-80– You may not need professional help but you need to work on controlling
your anger in a very deliberate manner.

51-60- You have plenty of room for improvement. Reading a self help book on anger
control could be beneficial

30-50– You’re probably getting angry as often as most people. Monitor your episodes of
temper and see if you can lower your score on this test in 6 months.
Below 30- Congratulate yourself. You are likely in a good comfort zone.
