Clinical Classification referredto two types of aggression.
The first is: impulsive, or hot-blooded affective, reactive,defensive,” aggression. Which defined as un controlled response to physical orverbal aggression initiated by others that is relatively uncontrolled andemotionally charged. Contrary to the second form of aggression is referred to as:predatory, instrumental, proactive, or cold-bloodedaggression. This type of aggression is described as a controlled and purposefulaggression absent in emotion that is used to accomplish a goal, including thedomination and control of others. views aggression in humans as eitherpredominantly affective or predatory. Similarly, categorizes childhoodaggression as either proactive or reactive, while admitting that very fewaggressive acts are purely reactive or proactive in nature.
In the Diagnosticand Statistical Manual—IV reference is made to Intermittent Explosive Disorder,a form of clinical aggression like reactive aggression in which the individualfor an intermittent, short period of time loses control and becomesinordinately aggressive (Atikins ,1993). According to (Atikins ,1993) model aggressionclassifies into 2 types: instrumental(beneficial agreeing) and hostile functions (non-beneficial aggression).Instrumental aggression has positive impact on the aggressor unrelated to thevictim’s discomfort, On the other hand hostile aggression has negative impactupon the aggressor and the victim, which has no advantage to the aggressor.
· Maternal aggression, induced by a threatening stimulus in the proximityof the mother’s young· Instrumental aggression, induced by any of the situations alreadydescribed, but strengthened by learning · Territorial aggression, induced by the presence of an intruder in thehome or territory of a resident· Irritable aggression, induced by the presence of any attachable object.The tendency to display irritable aggression is enhanced by any stressor, suchas isolation, electrical shock, and food deprivation.· Inter-male aggression, induced by the presence of a novel maleconspecific in a neutral arena· Fear-induced aggression induced by threats and always preceded by escapeattempts· Predatory aggression, induced by the presence of a natural object ofprey Stimulus-based classification,external and internal stimuli are significant antecedents of aggressionclassified aggressive behavior according to seven stimulus situations thatelicited the behavior. These antecedents are: Differences in Gender Usually we hear thatmales are more aggressive that females. Although according to at the age 14 to25 both gender tend to engage in aggressive behaviors and commit violent crimesbut females aggressiveness start 2 years earlier then male also females tend tocommit indirect aggression, such as isolation of others from their social groupand verbal aggression (libeling) in-other hand, male engage in directaggression and (physical fight ) usually it cause serious harm unlike females aggressions(Atikins ,1993) . Despite various classification systems for aggression they overlap significantly,with each system having a slightly different emphasis. aggression Forms composedof: the instrumental and the positive versus negative classification, stimulus-basedclassification versus hostile classification, clinical classification (Smith,2008). Theoretical perspectives on aggression suggestthat different subtypes of aggressions present.
It is important to think of thecomplicated nature of aggression because different factors combine withdifferent physiological and mental processes to create distinct forms ofaggression (Smith,2008). Historically, some researchers of human andanimal behavior, like Freud and Konrad Lorenz, claimed that aggressive behaviorare innate on the other hand, others have suggested that it is a learntbehavior(ÖZÇEL?K,2017). Its most probably that there are both genetic andenvironmental significant addition resulting in aggressive behavior, and someof the biological and environmental antecedents of aggression are reviewedbelow.
Nowadays, most of researchers are concentrating on social learning,child abuse, neglect, TV violence, modeling, family violence, structural andfunctional brain abnormalities, hormones, and neurotransmitters (Smith,2008).Literature review In our life and the world around, us we meet many people who areaggressive in one occasion and soft and polite in the other. Is it theirnature? What is aggression? Why anyone become aggressive? Is it true? And to what extend the proverbthat says (to gain your right back and to protect your existence you must beaggressive some time). Is it part of our human behavior that neutrally existsand activated as necessary? Or is it acquired as we grow in stressful conditionand aggressive environment? Many psychologist, anthropologists and biologistswere curious to study the aggression phenomena. And to find its origin, types, condition,cues that precede it, human and animal aggression behaviors.
This conceptanalysis paper aimed to define how the concept of aggressiveness has beendefined in the literature. And to clarify the attributes of aggressiveness andidentify antecedents that influence the perception and the possibleconsequences. A model case demonstrates how aggressiveness is linked to thesecritical attributes. A borderline case and a contrary case are presented todifferentiate the concept of aggressiveness from other concepts. Empiricalreferents demonstrate the current perspective of the concept.
The dictionarydefinition of “Aggression is that it is the action of a state in violating byforce the rights of another state, particularly its territorial rights; anunprovoked offensive, attack, invasion”( 2017,Dictionary). Aggression inpsychology defined as the behaviors that areintended to either harm own self or other humans or object around us in theenvironment physically or mentally. Operationally it is the number of times theaggressor attempts to, or succeeds in physically assaulting, verbally insulting or irritating a victim peopleobject and animal. Introduction
