Roberto, Anthony J.; Meyer, Gary; Boster, Franklin J.; Roberto, Heather L.
Human Communication Research, v29 n1 p135-47 Jan 2003
Examines the ability of the theory of reasoned action to explain and predict adolescents' verbal (i.e., insulting) and physical (i.e., fighting) aggression, as well as behaviors that encourage aggression such as watching a fight or telling others about a fight that is going to happen. Reveals that attitudes and subjective norms predicted behavioral intent, and intent predicted behavior for watching a fight, spreading rumors about a fight, and insulting. (SG)
