Dr. X is studying how anger is related to happiness. His operational definition for anger is how often a person's eyebrows draw or come closer together within a 24-hour period. Is this an operational definition?

    No. It is not an operational definition.


    As the definition for anger mentioned above about the eyebrows is not an operational definition as the eyebrows can come closer or move away in other emotions as well.

    Operational definition : Anger is an emotion which is associated with the hostility and aggression where a person shows their displeasure or rage.

    Since anger is an intense emotional state it may cause harm to the other people, when one acts aggressively because of frustration.

    A man cursing and screaming at his brother is an example of someone displaying anger.
