The present paper investigates the appraisal contents associated with anger and the different means of controlling and expressing this emotion. With a sample of 121 participants, a Likert-type scale was used to measure Scherer's dimensions of appraisal (1997) and Smith and Lazarus's components of appraisal (1993). The factor analysis (Oblimin with Kaiser Rotation) produces four appraisal factors. A discriminating analysis is also used to assess the discriminative validity of these four factors when it comes to sorting groups by their degree of experience, expression and anger control as measured by the STAXI 2 (Spielberger, 2000). The results show that harmful and other-accountability appraisals seem to have a strong effect on the way how anger is experienced and expressed.
