Angry is a vague thing. I hate to nitpick and be the one to say "Well it really depends on what "X" really means." but most emotions really are relative. They play on one another. Play on the source. Play on the basis.
I don't get angry often. I get frustrated, I get irritated. If I don't live up to my own standards typically. I just seek balance, bring what is garble and dissonance, to dissonance that is balanced. Anger isn't an emotion I really feel often though, it isn't what I'd consider a "base" emotion. It stems from other things that are more elementary, for me. Because of this it is usually easy enough to counterbalance if it is there to begin with.
My therapist said to me as a child to always just stand and take deep breaths, but that only channeled more anger. So eventually, I found squeezing something to the point of its dismay to be satisfying. Needless to say, up to my 20s, lots of stress balls have seen better days.
Most of the time, I do what you SHOULDN'T do, which is bottle it in and try to put on a happy face for people. But really, I try to vent it. Blowing people up in a videogame. Drawing or something, or just listening to music that relaxes me or lets me drift off in my thoughts for a bit. That and I try to just sleep it off.
Really, I only get angry at Call of Duty games when someone one-hit kills me with a shotgun from across the map.
But when it happens, I scream, criticize my killer's class, his weapon/perk/equipment choice, call them campers/quickscopers, and eventually rage quit the lobby.
Especially when I die one off a Bloodthirsty/Merciless.
