(HealthDay News) -- Anger is a normal, healthy emotion. However, when it becomes destructive or uncontrollable, it can lead to lower quality of life for you and those around you, says the American Psychological Association.

If you're unsure of the severity of your anger, there are psychological tests that can measure if you are "too angry."

Anger management can help reduce the emotional response to the things or people that enrage you. Psychologists and other mental health professionals can help develop techniques for changing your thinking and behavior.
