Anger in Everyday Life: When, Where, and With Whom?
Fitz, Don; Gerstenzang, Sharon
Commuter students completed the Interpersonal Conflict Questionnaire which asked about four interactions involving hostility ranging from silent anger to physical violence. Results showed that intense episodes typically occurred longer ago, and most opponents were known for more than a year. Intense episodes were more likely to occur at one's own home and involve blood relatives as opponents. Frequency of spouses and lovers as opponents remained constant across episodes. Though the frequency of anger for men and women did not differ, there were sex differences with respect to location, relationship to opponent, and sex of opponent. The only significant effect for age of respondent indicated that the youngest (19-20 yrs.) were least likely to become angry at strangers or casual acquaintances. (Author)
