Aggressive Behaviour

Aggressive behaviour arises from a tendency to interpret other people’s intentions as hostile and aggressive. This tendency is also present in ambiguous, non-provoking or threatening situations, were others’ intentions are benign. There was a significant relationship between a hostile attribution bias and aggressive behaviour. One subdivision of aggression often reported in the literature, is between proactive and reactive aggression. Reactive aggression is characterized by impulsivity and aggression in reactions to real or imaginary threat, provocation, or frustration. This is the type of aggression, which according to the frustration-aggression model of Berkowitz, is explained by an inner frustration leading to aggression and hostility. Individuals characterized by this type of aggression expect their behaviour to lead to positive advances and are not engaged in possible negative consequences of their behaviour for others. The Reactive Proactive Questionnaire (RPQ), which measures two important types of aggression; reactive, impulsive aggression and proactive, instrumental aggression. For the present study, we used the Dutch translation of the RPQ. The RPQ can be applied to anyone with the reading level of an 8-year-old child. The questionnaire consists of 23 items, of which 12 items are proactive (e.g., “How often did you have fights to show who was on top”) and 11 items are reactive (e.g., “How often have you damaged things because you felt angry”). The items of the RPQ reflect either physical or verbal aggression and include the motivation and situational context for the aggression.
