Aggression And Social Anxiety Among Young Adults
Aggression is a behaviour that is intended to harm another individual who does not wish to be harmed. Intentional harm is, however, perceived as worse than unintentional harm, even when the harms are identical. In psychology, the term aggression refers to a range of behaviors that can result in both physical and psychological harm to a person or objects in the environment. Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people. It is a pervasive disorder and causes anxiety and fear in most all areas of a person’s life.
