  1. This is more of a reaction, but when I know someone is angry, I (and others) feel an intense urge to tip-toe around and make very little noise.

    -Cutting sarcasm (not the funny kind)
    -Inhale loudly
    -Forced patience
    -the "crescendo effect" = start talking very quietly, slowly building up to a yell
    -Slamming things
    -Internal: the desire to say EXACTLY on my mind, in as hurtful a way as possible. May or may not be acted on.

  2. -Narrowing of eyes
    -Face flushed
    -Snapping words to those around you
    -Sudden physical reaction against the person who made you mad: hitting, gripping wrist, etc.
