Difference Between Anger and Rage

Anger vs Rage

Anger and rage are related to each other and most people do not find any hard difference between the two. Both anger and rage are emotional outbursts.

Anger is a feeling or emotion that a person has when being offended or when wronged. Rage can be considered to be an action in retaliation to the anger that a person has. Rage is a situation when a person is not able to handle their anger in a proper way.

Anger is an emotion that every person comes across. It is just a feeling like happiness or sorrow. On the other hand, Rage is an extreme expression of anger.

Anger is an emotion that a person will have for only a few moments or for a day at the most. In case this emotion persists for longer periods, then it is rage. In anger, there is no blood shed but rage could lead to blood shed.

It can also be seen that anger is considered to be healthy, whereas rage is not considered healthy. This means that a person who is angry will have the power to control the emotions. But a person having rage has no control of their emotions and it could be sometimes destructive.

Some people say that rage involves an element of anger but anger does not have the pinch of rage. Unlike anger, rage is an intricate mix of fear, desperation anger and panic.

There is also the possibility that people in a rage forget what they say and do. But an angry person knows what he does and says. Unlike anger, rage is a complete blackout of the thoughts.

  1. thanks for such a fruitful information ! best luck for future !

  2. Very helpful. I’ve only shown real anger a mere handful of times in my life, being essentially a calm almost passive person. Recently an argument expanded to include various insults having nothing to do with the original trivial matter. Having tried to end the discussion sternly, I ended up yelling NO with an NCIS style upside the head motion, thenleft and immediately came back to my calm centered self. The arguer has since made more than one remark about my “blowing up” “exploding” etc, all to frame me as rageful. So I was happy to find this which clarifies for me that I had only a normal and short-lived emotion to provocation. Which is how I saw it to begin with. But now, if the subject continues to be a thorn in my side, I will have something to counter with.

  3. I stumbled upon this because I was told by someone that I had a problem with rage, but yet I am told it’s okay to be angry, I know I have a problem with both, but this really shined some light on the subject of my problems. I have a lot of pint up anger and rage inside of me, and usually I let it out when I feel I have been pushed too far or I get in that ”fed up with everything” kind of mood. This makes sense to me, I was one of the many who thought that anger and rage were essentially the same thing and I am glad that I know otherwise now. Thank you for this information!

  4. I needed help understanding my anger. I wasn’t always like this. Getting to the point, after 7 year’s a new landlord took over the apartment building I was living in and raised the rent so high leaving me no choice-I had to move back home. My life,
    my friend’s, my Church and my work at the shelter were gone. My sister took me in (thank God) there’s one problem my mother lives upstairs. She drinks at nite and the next day abuse’s me (verbally) terribly. I can’t take it anymore. My generation was raised to never talk or disrespect your parent’s. There’s no talking to her about ANYTHING! I have a psychiatrist and therapist and it helps but I’m scared because I go to bed and wake up with tears and frustration. Today is Christmas morning and I just want to disappear for good. Thanks for letting me vent. Merry Christmas
