Being angry is necessary and important for an individual to survive. When ones brain is in an angry state, they are inclined to respond very aggressively in order to defend themselves and be fit for survival. However, it is not possible to express annoyance to every person around the enraged individual because there are norms, values and laws that require humans to use common sense to limit how far the anger can take them.
Different people use a variety of anger management techniques. Some express their feelings, others completely suppress them while others choose to remain calm. The healthiest way to deal with discontent is expressing it assertively but not aggressively.
Suppressing emotions is usually done if there is no positive outcome to expressing how one feels. It involves converting the feelings into something more positive but it is not always easy as not expressing it can lead the individual to direct dismay inward. If it is directed inward, it can lead to high blood pressure or even depression.
Unexpressed anger can be destructive to an individual and those around them. This is why most courts order anger management classes for disturbed persons or those that are known to display violence. Suppressing agitation leads to indirectly showing dismay to the persons that have wronged the person or being cynical and hostile. Some people feel that they should reciprocate their rage with violence which is a very destructive analogy that ends up harming all the people who are involved.
In closing, there are symptoms of anger problems that are both overt and covert that people exhibit which often can make it difficult to diagnose.
