Anger

Anger is an emotion of displeasure, usually regarding an act or idea of another person or organisation. Sometimes a person feels angry at him- or herself for having acted stupidly or badly, etc.

Anger involves a sense of wrongedness, outrage, frustration, irritation, or violent conflict.

In the Christian tradition, causeless, excessive, or protracted anger is sinful (Matt. 5:22; Eph. 4:26; Col. 3:8), one of the seven deadly sins. As ascribed to God, it merely denotes his displeasure with sin and with sinners (Ps. 7:11).

Anger may also result from irritability[?] brought on by illness such as bipolar disorder.
