Value Description
Aggression takes a variety of forms among human beings, and it can be physical, mental, or verbal. Aggression should not be confused with assertiveness. There are two broad categories of aggression. These include hostile, affective, or retaliatory aggression and instrumental, predatory, or goal-oriented aggression. Empirical research indicates that there is a critical difference between the two, both psychologically and physiologically. Some research indicates that people with tendencies toward affective aggression, defined in this study as being impulsive, unplanned, overt, or uncontrolled have lower IQs than those with tendencies toward predatory aggression, defined here as being goal-oriented, planned, hidden, or controlled.
