Frustration-aggression hypothesis

#1  Postby ogger » Jun 06, 2019 6:18 am

Hello I have a question. Frustration-aggression hypothesis states that there is one consequence of frustration, that is aggression. How do we explain when people lose interest in everything or get depressed after an frustrating event?

Well, the authors of the hypothesis modified it nearly immediately to say that while frustration precedes aggression, aggression is just one possible outcome of frustration.

So in its simplest rendition: frustration *may* lead to aggression.

In scientific terms, we look at things like and thresholds and tolerance of dynamic systems. There is an outcome that can be estimated, based on expectation, reward, and time invested. Any given task can be assigned these variables in some quantifiable and measurable way that I have no idea what I'm talking about.

I can only say how it works for me. It has stages: 1. frustration, 2. aggression, 3. fucking idiots I give up, 4. depression from disappointment and helplessness

Dismissing everyone else as a fucking idiot is a convenient way of ignoring one's own failings, but that degree of cognitive dissonance would almost inevitably lead to feelings of frustration.

I generally go straight from 1 to 4 and stay stuck there.

It takes very little psychobabble to do better than that. You've even made a tentative little start.
