To these 101 students from under graduation level were selected using purposive sampling method. To collect the data State Trait Anger Expression Inventory (STAXI) developed by Spielberger (1994) which assesses the intensity of anger as an emotional state (State Anger) and the disposition to experience angry feelings as a personality trait (Trait Anger), College Adjustment Scales (CAS) developed by Anton and Reed (1990) consists 9 sub- dimensions and WHO General Wellbeing Scale (1998) were used. Because STAXI and CAS were multidimensional scales, the relationship among Anger, Adjustment and Wellbeing were primarily found out followed by regression analysis. The purpose of the study was to find out whether Adjustment functions as a moderating role in the relationship between Anger and Wellbeing.
