'... never .. in ... anger ....'

'Anthropologist Jean Briggs lived with an Inuit  family during the early 1960s, when she was doing research and writing about them for her doctoral              thesis. When she got "angry", they treated her as


a child, because they thought that "anger" was an infantile emotion, something never expressed by


Inuit adults. This experience led to many more years of research on the emotions and ideas by which Inuit lived, and how they learned and taught them.'
