The Anger Face

“Don’t make me angry…you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.” – David Banner, the nice guy that becomes the Incredible Hulk

We all get angry. Even the most peaceful of us can feel it, even if we don’t show it. But showing it is one of the things that we all do best.

Think of a little three-year old girl. She is busy enjoying some toys and then you tell her it is time to stop. While she might get upset and cry, she is just as likely to get angry. What does she look like?

The angry face is a universal phenomenon. The brow is lowered. The muscles in the face are shown prominently. This look can easily be seen as anger by every culture around the world. Recently a study researched about how the anger face came to be and is used. It is rather interesting. Check it out.

    I remember my son when he was less than 2 years old asking me one day if I was mad at him because I had a “line on my forehead” I guess to him that was my anger face
