Predicting Aggressive behavior using Ego Depletion, Provocation and Dispositional Aggressiveness
This study, based on the I-Cubed model behavior, examined situational factors which can contribute to the manifestation of aggressive behavior. Participants included 96 students from Illinois Wesleyan University. An E-Crossing task was utilized as an Ego- Depletion task to manipulate participants' levels of inhibition, negative feedback from an ostensible other participant was used to provoke participants and manipulate instigation, and dispositional aggressiveness- measures on the Buss- Perry Aggression Questionnaire- was used as the factor of impellance. Analyses indicated that the provocation of participants played a key role in predicting aggressive behavior, but Ego- Depletion did not significantly impact this prediction.
