What does anger taste like?
As a powerful survival instinct, anger is integral to defending your inner core. We use anger to fight for boundaries and to communicate abject fears. These are the necessary and healthy aspects of anger. When feeling threatened or scared, you have probably used anger to defend yourself or to be heard. In the mourning process, anger is one of the emotions that moves in and out like the tide. Sometimes it envelops you like a flood, and if you respect its power, you can learn more about how and why it operates. Instead of avoiding it or letting it mold you, you want to tap into the ability to converse with its core: Identify what fuels it and gain insight into what quiets it.

It smells like the perfume she wore on that Friday night she went out to go shopping, it hurts like a knife stabbing at your heart. Anger is the growing roar of a thunderstorm, the building violence of a hurricane, the unstoppable force of a Ford Thunderbird at a hundred miles per hour colliding with the thin plywood wall of a motel. Anger is the howling wind in your ears, the drowning drone of a million bees.

Except if you study taste, in which case you can hardly avoid it. Emotional responses to tastes are, we can say with a reasonable degree of certainty, built into the fabric of the taste experience. The adaptive argument, too, is simple: tastes evoke emotions because this activates motivations to consume calories, salt or avoid toxins and hence promote survival. Our everyday language provides us with some hints that taste may find links with our emotions more broadly. Thus, unpleasant emotional experiences will leave a bitter taste in your mouth ; we say that we can taste the fear , and of course sweetness is synonymous with all sorts of pleasant emotions.
