 No Gender Difference in Aggressive Behavior Patterns

A new study published in the journal, Child Development., has revealed that both boys and girls are equally guilty of indirect aggressive social behavior.

While it has been often assumed that boys exhibit physically aggressive behavior to get their way, both boys and girls indulge in indirect aggression. Researchers from University of Arizona observed the behavior of more than 74,000 children, many of whom were teenagers.


The researchers found that kids who indulge in indirect aggressive behavior often suffer from self-esteem problems but are socially active in order to harness support from friends to either encourage gossip or exclude other children from their social groups.
