Male Competitive Intent leads to Aggression against Female Confederate after Social Stress
Male aggression is a prominent issue in society today, but it is difficult to accurately study aggression in experimental settings. For that reason, this proposed study conceptualizes competitive intent as a precursor for aggression. Straight men were subjected to social stress as a means to generate competition between him and the confederate. How men reacted to feedback differently from male and female confederates was of interest in this study.
