Majority of it is **** upbringing, already being predisposed to it. Unless you believe in the warrior gene, however, some people are genuinely more prone to losing it than others, so guess it's the nature-nurture debate.

Hello, thanks very much for your response. Yes, I believe people that come from dysfunctional families are more likely to have learned that behaviour and repeat it when in adulthood. However, do you believe that with effective treatment that aggressive behaviour can be controlled and therefore less likely to occur again?

Well yes, plenty of old school studies have shown this, as have checking through backgrounds of serial killers. And yes, aggression can be controlled, dependent of person I guess. However, even if you evolve or restrict your impulsiveness, your disposition will always be latent, ready to be triggered by whatever stimuli out there.

Hello, many scientists nowadays believe that adolescents are more likely to behave aggressively due to influences from testosterone and also the environment. I want to know if you agree with these as contributing factors?

I look forward to your response.

Kind regards,
Chad

Not really, I'm just asking for opinions because oftentimes science takes U-turns and Eureka - a new hypothesis!

Kind regards,

Ones disposition is always in conflict with the environment.

There must be some genetic factors at play but imo it’s overwhelmingly the type of environment they were raised in which affects their aggression level the most. Being exposed to verbal/physical abuse early as well as constant criticism/reinforced feelings on inferiority hasn’t worked out well for most of the people I know.

What is your reason for asking the question? Are you writing an essay on it?
