The purpose of the present study was to investigate the sex differences in anger experience which manifest themselves in interactions with other conditions. One hundred twenty-three adults and 130 university students from Osaka were asked to respond to Averill's questionnaire on“Everyday Experience of Anger. "They were asked to rate their recent anger episodes, according to the instigations, targets, motives, behavioral responses, and other factors. In order to examine the interaction effects between the sex of the subjects and other factors, the data were analyzed by ANOVA and log-linear analysis according to the sex and age of the subjects, the sex of the targets, and their relationship. The results were as follows;(1)The sex differences in anger were greater in adults than in students;(2)The sex of targets did not significantiy influence the angry persons' behavioral responses against them; and(3)The sex differences largely depended upon the interpersonal relationship, for example, the females tended to display aggression against familiar targets while the males did against less well-known targets.
