Anger a big issue for young men, women
Anger management is becoming a critical social issue in a nation where hate and revenge crimes are on the rise. So, a match-making company polled 430 single men and women in their 20s and 30s to gauge just how well they deal with anger.
While more than 50 percent handled anger well, about 46 percent of single men and women said they had a problem.
Most (30.9 percent) attributed their anger to a lack of patience and understanding, followed by 20 percent who cited chronic stress; 18.1 percent who said it was because of “manner-void” people; and 15. 6 percent by sense of inferiority.
The reasons varied when analyzed by gender. A total of 24.9 percent of single men said they felt angry when there was harm from public-order issues such as noise and waste pollution, while 26.2 percent of single women felt that unwanted advice or intervention from family were stressful. The second-largest source of anger for single men was family nitpicking (21.5 percent), followed by a quarrel with a lover (15.3 percent) and mannerless people (13.9 percent). The second-largest source of anger for single women was a quarrel with a lover (24.4 percent), followed by a boss’ nitpicking (14.9 percent) and mannerless people (14 percent).
