ABSTRACT

The present study was intended to find out the levels of aggression and media violence among young adults and also to understand the relationship between these two variables. A sample of 80 young adults (N=45 Males and N=35 Females) were selected for the study using purposive sampling technique. Through online survey two questionnaires were distributed to young adults aged between 18 to 25 years. Buss Perry aggression questionnaire including 29 items was used to determine the aggression among young adults. Content based media exposure scale (A.H. Den Hermer) was used to determine the extent of media exposure. Descriptive statistics and Pearson product moment correlation was done. According to Pearson product moment, it was found that there is positive correlation between aggression and media violence among young adults. The null hypothesis was rejected indicating that increase in one can significantly cause an increase in other.
