Thymos is something like an innate human sense of justice; people believe that they have a certain worth, and when other people act as though they are worth less—when they do not recognize their worth at its correct value—they become angry. The intimate relationship between self-evaluation and anger can be seen in the English word synonymous with anger, indignation. Dignity refers to a person's sense of self-worth; indignation arises when something happens to offend that sense of worth.
