Anger and alienation are two areas of major concern in the current changing times marked by people living lives without feeling connected with their significant others, and exhibiting marked lowered frustration tolerance in reacting in social and familial interactions. It is important to tap the young adults so that appropriate help can be provided at the age when they are individuating and forming a stable personality. In contemporary times health has become an area of major concern and the most basic aspect for the same is the BMI.

Abstract


Anger and alienation are two areas of major concern in the current changing times marked by people living lives without feeling connected with their significant others, and exhibiting marked lowered frustration tolerance in reacting in social and familial interactions. It is important to tap the young adults so that appropriate help can be provided at the age when they are individuating and forming a stable personality. In contemporary times health has become an area of major concern and the most basic aspect for the same is the BMI. The current paper explores anger in relation to alienation and BMI, also referring to the socio-demographic variables. The research was performed by using standardized psychological measures on a sample of 70 individuals and the results obtained were analyzed using correlation, t-test and ANOVA. Anger and alienation were found to be highly positively correlated but gender differences and mediating effect of BMI was absent. Results and their implications are discussed in detail in the present paper.
