In group dynamics, charge is the accumulation of anger, mistrust, frustration, and hostility about a particular person or issue.

In the theory of group dynamics, when charge accumulates beyond a certain point, rational discussion becomes impossible because the emotional response is overpowering. Excessive charge sometimes drains away over time and can occasionally be overcome through mediation by a third party.
