If children can download their aggressiveness and externalize their emotions, they will easily be balanced adults.


THE origin of the aggressiveness keeps often relationship with States of frustration, although not must underestimate is not them traits of character of each subject. The balanced adult is who knows accept the negative circumstances and maintain aggressiveness within the limits of socially acceptable behavior.
The theme of aggression does not interest obviously only psychoanalysts, they have been dedicated to the psychologists and scholars from different cultural background, focusing on it from different points of view.
Psychologists have approached the problem of aggressiveness retaking the hypothesis advanced by Freud about the relation between frustration and aggressive demonstrations. Starting from the premise that the aggression is always result of a frustration, these authors have come to the enumeration of a set of fundamental principles and to the formulation of a genuine theory of aggression.
the aggressiveness is natural in them Toys
the postulated fundamental of this theory is: “a behavior aggressive is always a State prior of frustration and, vice versa, the frustration leads always to any form of aggression.” Frustration means that condition that manifests itself when an obstacle stands between the need and the end able to satisfy it according to this theory, the origin of aggression can always be found in a frustration, and the push for aggressive behavior varies in proportion to the intensity of frustration, which in turn depends on other elements : it intensity of it need frustrated, the proportions of the obstacle that is has interposed in the achievement of the end, the amount and the type of frustrations experienced previously.
Aggressive discharge will not always aimed directly at the source of the frustration, but can often be inhibited by the fear of punishment or the fear of failure, and this inhibition leads to a displacement of aggression towards another object

this displacement, usually unconscious can go accompanied of a considerable transformation of the Act aggressive that , for example, can take form of irony, of necessity justified by a precept moral, or well banging. However the inhibition of aggression and self-harm are in turn causes of frustration and therefore constitute new cases of aggression, while the expression of aggression through an act constitutes a release, a discharge of tension.

Actually, not is can consider the aggressiveness simply as a mode of reaction to the frustration, but is necessary include this phenomenon in the frame of an analysis global of the personality, taking in has all them phenomena that influence in the behavior individual, i.e., them experiences and them models of reference to which the individual has State exposed and to which has had that adapt is in the course of his life.

There is no doubt that the intensity of the reaction varies from shape directly proportional to the intensity of the frustration, but the type of reaction and the type of sensitivity vary from an individual to another, similarly varying mechanisms governing the control, transfer or extinction of the emotional reaction.
He analysis of it aggressiveness, as the of any other phenomenon psychic, runs the risk of fall in the abstraction if not is considered to them people that live and value the behavior offensive in its context global, because, as any other behavior, also the aggressive must interpret is to the light of them stages and of them experiences by which has last the development psychosocial of the subject. In this context, the focus is not something abstract, but these forms of bias and aggressive attitude that dominate and characterized the relations of some subjects with reality.

In the opinion of many researchers of behavior, aggressive personality is a personality fragile, unable to bear the frustration, anxiety, and which interprets much of reality as a permanent source of threats. The early frustrations that have determined a low sense of self-esteem, anxiety, conflict, guilt, intolerance induce a person not only to be aggressive with their peers and with itself, but also a completely distorted perception of reality. As the addiction, the perversion and the crime, also it aggressiveness, that often is associated to them first, represents the alteration of a development ideal and the symptom of an imbalance of the personality.
