Abstract: Performed 2 experiments to explore the relationship between the inhibitions conditioned to verbal and physical aggression. In Exp I, 242 7th, 8th, and 9th grade boys from middle and lower socioeconomic neighborhoods were exposed to televised physical aggression with and without consequences to the victim. 169 4th, 5th, and 6th grade boys from public schools were Ss in Exp II and were exposed to televised verbal and physical aggression. The intensity of post-viewing verbal and physical aggression was measured. The relationship between physical and verbal aggression was minimally supported.
