Test your aggression behavior by Online EQ TEST
What is aggression?
One definition of aggression is behavior that is intended to cause harm. It can be physical, mental or verbal and in human beings is an unattractive and undesirable trait.
Occasionally it is necessary to seek treatment or undergo therapy in order to moderate over-aggressive behavior and we have learn much in recent decades about how various parts of the brain and different hormones can be connected to aggressive behavior.
Aggression should not be confused with assertiveness. Although assertiveness can occasionally turn into aggression if, for example, someone is trying to impose their ideas, opinions or interest on others too strongly; they are two quite separate things.
In general, aggression is a form of animal behavior characterized by an attack on one animal by another. This can take the form of conflict between members of different species for the purpose of obtaining food or of defence or attacks directed towards members of the same species, as in the case of goats butting their heads together or male deer locking antlers.
In humans aggression is a general term used to describe a wide variety of acts, including attack or hostility towards one another, and can be caused by a wide range of factors including fear, frustration and a desire to produce fear or flight in others.
In general the type of aggression that many people tend to think of when the term is used is that evoked by frustration, or the thwarting of one’s goals. It also manifests itself as a display of willpower and the desire to control others.
In humans learned experience is important in determining the level of aggressive behavior, and frequently the trading of insults or the presence of weapons has been learned or copied from various sources.
The obtaining of rewards by children, such as toys, extra attention and sweets, as a result of aggressive behavior is also likely to reinforce such behavior, in the same way that you do not give biscuits to a dog who is barking loudly in the direction of the biscuit barrel as he will then bark even louder and more frequently in the future.
Children also learn aggression by observing others, by having the wrong type of role models and by the influence of the mass media.

Question 25 of 25
25. Question2 points
Do you gesticulate a great deal when you are arguing strongly?
It is necessary always to strike the right balance of temperament in order to obtain what you want out of life without resorting to aggressive behavior, which will alienate others towards you.
For people of an excessively aggressive nature, this characteristic may become the dominant force in their personality and it is important they go to whatever lengths necessary in their attempts to temper such aggression.
One sure-fire way of losing any argument, as well as alienating other people is to lose one’s temper and become aggressive. In practically every situation, diplomacy is a much more effective approach than demand.
On the other hand, overly docile people are unlikely to show their dismay at other people’s actions, let alone do anything about them, or express or display outward disappointment if things go against them.
One possible drawback to this nature may mean that such people may be put upon and taken advantage of by others, and in extreme cases may be subject to some degree of bullying; and this is something they need to be aware of and guard against.
