Social Information-Processing Mechanisms in Reactive and Proactive Aggression.
Crick, Nicki R.; Dodge, Kenneth A.
Child Development, v67 n3 p993-1002 Jun 1996
Social information-processing patterns in 9- through 12-year olds at least partially supported 3 hypotheses: only reactive-aggressive children would demonstrate hostile biases in their attributions of intentions in provocation situations; only proactive-aggressive children would evaluate aggression in positive ways; and proactive-aggressive children would select instrumental social goals over relational goals more often than nonaggressive children.
