  • History                                                                                          “I am very anxious about business. As I did so much hard work and established full-fledged business, so who will handle it if I die? My son and daughter will not be capable to handle it. My parents died in my childhood and once in a while I am on the road (poor). And I am so much attached to my daughter and son (emotional).” (Weeping) I have to settle down all things.” “I used to weep when I am alone.” “We don’t live without each other.” My son gives so much respect to me. ”In present world no one gives respect to his parents. But my son will never do it.” Respect is most important in life.”
  • Hobby – “I like travelling. I love to eat food in a group with my friend circle. Because in family we are only four members. So, I invite all friends and we enjoy all. This is what I like the most. I feel very happy in doing that.”
  • Past history – “If someone says/does something wrong I feel very angry. Before the birth of my daughter I use to fight a lot. I beat anyone/anywhere. In business if anyone says that you are lying, I feel very angry. I shout on him. My limbs tremble. Now I stopped beating people. I am an angry young man. I get angry very easily. In that state I am shaking. I lose my control. But now I can control it. Now I avoid talking in that state.”
  • Analysis
  • His anger is most clear.

ANGER- with trembling

Anger with loud shouting

Anger with violence

  • I have to select the remedy which has this anger quality, with afternoon aggravation, with need for respect in society and in the family.
  • “Respect is most important in life” indicates egotism and supremacy in family.
