Third Person Instigated Aggression.
Gaebelein, Jacquelyn
Since many acts of aggression in society are more than simply an aggressor-victim encounter, the role played by third person instigated aggression also needs examination. The purpose of this study was to develop a laboratory procedure to systematically investigate instigation. In a competitive reaction time task, high and low Machiavellian Males suggested which shock intensity their partners should deliver to an opponent. Instrumental reward, partner's cooperativeness, and opponent's provocation increased the aggressiveness of the suggestions across the blocks of trials, while Machiavellianism had no effect. References are included. (Author/SES)
