Competitive Aggression without Interaction: Effects of Competitive versus Cooperative Instructions on Aggressive Behavior in Video Games.
Anderson, Craig A.; Morrow, Melissa
Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, v21 n10 p1020-30 Oct 1995
Extended and tested Deutsch's theory of competition effects. Predicted that people view competitive situations as inherently more aggressive than cooperative ones. Predicted that leading people to think of an aggressive situation in competitive terms would increase aggressive behavior. Increase of kill ratio occurred in absence of changes in hostility, friendliness, or liking for one's game partner. (JBJ)
