A person may express this kind of behavior if they are either distressed or if they want to communicate an unmet need. It is classified in 2 groups: Instrumental aggression: aggressive behavior which is aimed at achieving/gaining an Objective Hostile aggression: aggressive behavior that is only done to hurt others. Aggressive behavior can take place as a result of an individual wanting to have their own way/get what they want or as a response to stress i. E. Too much noise surrounding their environment.
Anger is a normal and necessary human emotion but can also have an effect on an individual’s aggressive behavior. Anger is a person’s response to things such as threats and it can bring strong, aggressive feelings as a defense mechanism when Ewing attacked. When the anger begins to get out of control it can become damaging and this can then lead to continuous challenging behavior. Being assertive is the healthiest way of dealing with anger; it enables people to suppress their anger and enables them make and meet their needs clearly and without hurting other people.
Anger can also be suppressed by allowing the person to calm themselves down i. E. Walking or focus on positive things, however this can create a person to turn their anger inwards and hurt themselves physically i. E. High blood pressure, depression etc. , develop a simplistic/ aggressive personality or even indirectly attack others. There are many different theories about what causes aggression. The main theories include: instincts, drive and social learning theories.
Sigmund Freud, a theorist believed that the death instinct, also known as Thanks, is a source of aggressive inclinations that must be released regularly in order for individuals to maintain a heaths state of mind. This theory also claims that the development of this behavior can occur with or without an outside provocation. John Dollar, another theorist, claimed that the result of this behavior always derived from frustration. A man named Leonard Borrowing modified this theory by adding that frustration was followed by anger and only then will it lead to an aggressive behavior.
