2 forms of aggression displayed by adolescents were researched. Reactive aggression is consistently associated with a tendency to misinterpret ambiguous or neutral stimuli as hostile provocation or threat, and thus evocating an angry response. On the contrary, proactive aggression has been linked to a tendency to use aggression as an instrumental means to reach goals, and is usually unprovoked. [3rd Award]
