Abstract : The hypothesis that aggressive experiences reduce frustration as expressed by physiological (systolic blood pressure, heart rate, respiration and galvanic skin response) and psychological (anxiety) arousal was investigated by assessing differences in arousal achieved by the subject counteraggressing alone or through aggressive responses expressed with another person. Counter-aggression occurred through overt (apparent electric shock) and covert (abated) means and in the presence of a high status or low status instigator. (Author)
