Aggressive Boys' Hostile Perceptual and Response Biases: The Role of Attention and Impulsivity.
Waldman, Irwin D.
Child Development, v67 n3 p1015-33 Jun 1996
Examined whether aggressive boys, relative to nonaggressive boys, demonstrate hostile biases or general deficits in social perception. Found that aggressive boys demonstrated hostile biases, but not general deficits, in intention-cue detection relative to average-status boys. Aggressive groups proposed aggressive responses much more frequently than the nonaggressive groups following intentions perceived as nonhostile. (HTH)
