HOW DO YOU REACT TO BEING ANGRY?Rick Rock
Men and women get equally angry, but it’s in how they deal with that anger that sets them apart. Researchers from the University of Tennessee found that in men anger is often viewed as “masculine” -- it is seen as “manly” when men engage in fistfights or act their anger out physically.
For females, acting out in that way is not encouraged. Women usually get the message that anger is unpleasant and unfeminine. So, they engage in passive-aggressive maneuvers such as sulking or destructive gossip.
