Aristotle in his writing points out the 3 basic components to understanding anger which include understanding the frame of mind, with who they are angry and how often or why. He also mentions that anger is geared towards pain and pleasure. Virtue, as he states, whether intellectual or moral can lean a persons anger to be good. Once on understand that moral virtue arises from habits and that habits are potentially acquired before exhibited one can use it to promote or encourage intellectual virtue, a desire/motivation to become a better person, one of good character.

it is not necessary the case Aristotle also have others motives such the fail of any goal, or the unexpected lose of a relative, there is much more that pain and pleasure, as normal causes. we hace to analize other motives for this reaction in concern to anger

Those are reasons that Seneca presents against Aristole's argument and IT'S POSSIBLE THAT, they may be other factors of life in which even a good man under anger who has been wronged or who has suffered a loved one will seek to either punish or protect but even in its most painful moment ITS POSSIBLE THAT his desire leans towards protect.

Anger can be a motivator to fear what has happened and seek to learn intellectually how to resolve it.

This is irrelevant since every man have their desire to know what to do and what not to do. The feeling of anger and their effects in the mind control, is all up to the person choice. if the feeling of a lost can make the person commit a wrongdoing, is because that was the decision of the man in that moment, even though the feeling of anger it have to be a state of mind were the person analyze the effects of their actions, and its consequences.

IT IS IRRELEVANT the situation in which the man has found himself in or whom he has lost. As Epictetus would say, one must deal with what is in ones control. What may occur outside of you and around you is not what you can control, but if you learn to control that which i s, you can take all that anger and convert it into a positive. Anger isnt always a bad thing to have. Sometimes it is just the push that is needed emotionally to get you to do thing you would have never done had you not found yourself in certain positions that in the long run are beneficial and better to you.

IT IS POSSIBLE that you base your facts in self control, however anger can be a state of mind that betrayed your feelings and emotions. Anger itself is a felling that most of the time can be control, however think that we can bring something possible out of a negative fact it is NOT NECESARY the state of mind and the capacity of a person can play a basic role to determinate the state of feeling in a particular moment on life
