Fe(Male), Aggression: A Closer View

Is it more aggressive for men than women to be assertive?


Here’s a brief and detailed look at gender aggression. How women and men view aggression affects their aggressive behaviour. It is accepted that women are more aggressive than men. This statement may be universally accepted by many, but how can they explain why? This paper examines the effects of hormones on gender aggression. It also includes research by psychologists like James Dabbs and June Reinisch. These studies will help us better understand how and why we act aggressively. This study will highlight the importance and impact of aggression on both sexes, as well as different situations and cultural representations. You cannot simply say that men are more violent than women.

Differential Fe (Male) Aggression Which do you think is the aggressor? And which one is more of a victim? It doesn’t matter if it’s a girl or a guy. Because society believes that men are more aggressive and more violent than women, it’s easier to think of a man as the aggressor. This is because society interprets men’s aggression as more aggressive than girls in most countries. Women tend to see it as a concern, while men speak about the morality behind aggression. It is believed that it means defeat. However, it is the exact opposite for men. John Archer, the psychologist, discovered through meta-analysis that about 80% male peers rated boys more physically aggressively than the average female girl. For centuries, men and women have had different levels of physical aggression, dominance and sexual activities. However, this has been viewed as an advantage.

Fe(male) Aggression: Are there differences? Understanding aggression in humans is important for understanding yourself and others. The way they were raised in adolescence and their society influences can all play a role in their aggression. You will likely question why your mother, sister, or partner are so sensitive or how they get mad at you. It’s possible that you will find the answer you were searching for to your brother or father being so hard on you. You never know. We’ll see.

Adolescence, Learning AggressionLet us begin by comparing the stages of adolescence among genders. Evidence has shown that anger is a normal part of a woman’s development. Infants react similarly to crying as women, with some exceptions such as needing milk or diapers. Aggression does not depend on age. It depends on the child’s ability to express their feelings.

Fe(male) Aggression Differences understanding whether one was a girl or boy. This shows that individuals can learn to identify their gender and this will have an impact on their aggression in the future. Although aggression is less common in men than women, it tends to decrease as we age. This often happens at the beginning of adulthood. Critical research found that boys are more likely to identify their gender than girls, and they tend to suppress their own aggression.

As cultures develop, the signs of aggression in sex are often evident in young children. Numerous psychologists found that boys develop physical aggression by age three. Boys are more likely to hit, kick, push, wrestle, or kick than girls. Boys are more competitive and aggressive for territory, toys and manly recognition. They’re twice as likely, as girls, to pick on their sex. Teachers also tend to impose more discipline on them than they do on girls. Boys learn aggression is an effective way to get attention or a reaction. Boys who exhibit aggression can increase their peers’ response by more than 70%. This may help them thrive in violent situations. Attention is drawn to aggressive situations by girls as well.

Ageliki Nicolopoulou, a psychologist, found that girls and boys react differently to Fe (Male) Aggression. She collected 500 stories from pre-schoolers. As you might expect, aggressive and violent themes were found in 87% and 17% of the stories for boys. William Hartup, a psychiatrist, discovered that violence is more common in children as they get older. However, self respect and aggression are linked in his study which included 102 children aged between four and seven. It was discovered that boys are more likely to use aggression to assert their self-esteem than girls.

Both sexes seem drawn to the power-aggression connection, but society teaches girls it is a sign to lose control and failure, while boys are taught it as a way to demonstrate dominance. In popular entertainment and literature, girls who act aggressively are often depicted as bullies and villains.

Different Fe(Male). Maleficent and Ursula are examples of aggression villainesses. This and cultural differences in aggression teach girls to react with shame, not with bravado or calmness like men. Men who act aggressively can be rewarded with an increase in self-worth or manliness. Aggression is something men “feel good about”. They see it as a reward. These are common stereotypes such as the bullies in movies and the narcissistic heroes.

Not only are they exposed to aggression in books and television, but their parents also influence how they behave. Learning is a key factor in how we react when aggression occurs. One study saw children playing with toys of different genders in a room. Their parents were present to supervise them. Fathers saw their sons play with dolls and other feminine toys, so they gave it up in favor of more aggressive toys for boys like trucks. They couldn’t care less that their daughters were playing with action toys and toy cars. Because of fear of sexual abuse and assault, girls are more protected and sheltered than boys.

This shows that fathers tend to prefer to make their daughters more independent and assertive. Carol Ember, an Anthropologist, looked at a small Kenyan village and examined the impact of gender-typed assignments for opposite genders. Ember found that the aggressive behavior of boys who did less work with women was lower than that of average men. This is in contrast to boys who do more with their feminine tasks. Ember studied the effects of gender roles on aggression.

Hormonal influence on aggression June Reinisch, a psychologist, said that hormones influence aggression later on in the life of a person. This may be because of natural differences in the hormonal levels of the individual. Both animals and humans are more likely to be aggressive if they have high testosterone levels.

Human differences in Fe (Male) aggression James Dabbs and his associates conducted a study of over 700 male prisoners. The results showed that those with higher testosterone levels were more likely than others to break prison rules and commit violent crimes. Similar results were obtained for 171 female prisoners. Female inmates with high testosterone levels were more likely be dominant. (Dabbs & Hargrove, 1997; Dabb et. al., 1988; Dabbs, Carr, Frady & Riad, 1995). Analysis of 4000 Vietnam veteran veterans by the United States found that those with high testosterone had higher chances of mischievousness as children. Additionally, they were more likely have been exposed to drugs and alcohol, had more sexual partners, and were more likely participated in the Vietnam war than those with low testosterone (Dabbs & Morris, 1990). Low testosterone fraternity members were more civilized toward women than those with high testosterone (Dabbs Hargrove & Heusel 1996). The chances of men with high testosterone being married, in unhappy relationships, or even divorced are lower (Booth & Dabbs – 1993). They are also less likely to get married.

Fe(Male). They are aggressive, impatient and impetuous. Low testosterone individuals are more intimidating and mean than their counterparts. High testosterone people smile less often and are more insincere than those with low testosterone (Dabbs 1997; Cashdan 1995). Dr. David Barasch explained the physiological messages that male hormones have evolved to control aggression and encourage dominance. Dabbs said:

High testosterone levels are a result of human evolution.

How about the well-known excuse, “It’s that month.”? For years, medical establishments have used hormones to translate female aggression. What is PMS? The medical community uses PMS to explain why women suddenly rage. Female hormones are often viewed as a way to make a caring, loving partner into a nightmare. Robert, a psychologist, was the first to explain PMS.

Frank is described as an “indescribable tension”, an “irritability”, and a way to find relief through foolishness. The most common causes of PMS are cyclical imbalances within the body, such as decreased estrogen, progesterone levels, prolactin levels, and effects on prolactin.

A Closer Look on Fe(Male) AggressionInstrumental theorist, James Tedeschi, argued that aggression is just coercive power, using threats or violence to gain obedience and have demands met. Aggression is only valid if it makes someone submit or shows their superiority. Aggression is perceived by men as a challenge. But, to be at one’s mercy, no matter how physical or mental, is an indication of lack of respect. Men are willing to do anything to gain respect. Men get angry and hostile when their reputation or integrity is threatened. Many men want aggression to prove their dominance. However, many people believe that “real men”, as in real men, should be capable of responding to physical and verbal challenges. They see anyone who confronts them as “trying to hard”.

Men often need to be more self-controlled when they feel their target is unacceptable. Women, on the other hand, have greater control because aggression is too much. Most men use aggression to manage their emotions and control others.

Women need to be given a lot of push in order to stop violence from happening. Their anger tends to be about social standing rather than catharsis. Indirect aggression or relationship aggression is what women use more than verbally. It’s a form of aggression that involves gossiping about others and spreading rumors. For men, however, it is easier to forgive women who are more angry than they are for others. It is very different for women to reach their “breaking point” of aggression than it is for men. Women are more likely to cry than men when they feel angry. This is the best way to release tension and avoid violence. Men perceive crying as manipulative and childish. It could be because a woman’s tears are usually the end of an argument. Robert Averill, psychologist, found that 78% cried in conflict because they felt hurt.

Fe(male) Aggression frustration. Most women experience distress that can last so long they cannot let go.

Women can be just as physically violent when they reach their frustration peak. Women have a tendency to be able to manage their anger, which can sometimes lead them into being taken advantage. Women use violence to release their anger, such as throwing pots or repetitively punching and kicking. Fighting by women is an indication of their lack of self-control and anger. Society considers women who are violently violent to their bodies as either crazy or hysterical. Some men may find the women’s aggressiveness “cute” or funny, but others might find it frightening. The problem is that society misunderstands women’s aggression. Women who are aggressive feel like they have lost their rightful role and lack the pride and heroism of men. A woman will feel guiltier if she is so furious that she loses control of her actions. This may be a familiar situation, such as “I feel terrible” or “I behaved like this b*tch”, which can lead to shame and regret. Numerous

Researchers can confirm that aggression researchers have found differences in Fe (Male) aggression. They also agree that aggression-related guilt is more common among women than it is with men. Female aggression is mainly directed or [caused by stress] by men, especially when they are living with them or in a close relationship. Surprisingly, the people who are most anxious about using aggressive behavior are those who do not aggress. This holds true especially for females. Women who feel ashamed or anxious about using aggressive behavior aren’t in need of “help”, but can receive support from others without being judged.

Do men act more aggressively than women? Generally, yes. Many people overlook the fact that women can act just as aggressively as men. A man can easily be seen as an aggressor if they react in a certain way to situations. Men are quick to retaliate when they get upset about something. Women are the opposite.

Fe(Male Aggression) Differences are a big problem. When faced with aggressive situations, women are more capable of self-control than their male counterparts. Men often appear to be protectors, either to their partner or a friend. They will do whatever it takes to be respected, dominant or to get what their hearts desire. Aggression is a last resort for both men as well as women. The individual’s environment and biological factors can have a significant impact on how the results are achieved. Both can be equally verbal and physical. It all depends upon their circumstances, their hormone levels and how they were raised.
