Anger and Decision Making

Angry people were said to be irrational and some of them really are. They get irritated and do some things they would regret the next day. But then some scientists right now are saying that anger can fuel the right decisions. Maybe your brain becomes more focused when you are angry and you tend to become less distracted. Maybe Hulk has a point somewhere. In studies made at the University of California in Sta. Barbara, researchers found that the angry subjects were better at discriminating between strong and weak arguments and were more convinced by the stronger arguments. Those who were not made to feel angry tended to be equally convinced by both arguments, indicating that they were not as analytical in their assessments. The angry students were also better at weighing the arguments appropriately depending on which organization had made them.
