Spider Diagrams

Angry was the least popular of the words. As this is an emotion, I struggled to find words that could relate. It's like digging a little within yourself, and questioning what it is that makes you angry. Who wants to face that?

That said, looking back on the diagram for anger, I feel I could now add more. There's many triggers to anger and its not all necessarily from personal experience. Film and cartoons express anger in ways that are much larger than life. But perhaps what makes it difficult is the fact that most of the time the reason for triggering anger in someone can be narrowed down to a simple handful of reasons. When you are actually in the state of anger, that too can be narrowed down to a handful of different reactions. In total, there's not much to be said for anger. It's rage, it's aggressive, it's harsh, it's red, it's unhappy, and usually sparked by something or someone, hunger or tired - but mostly because of hunger or tired.
