Aggressive behavior and the perception of violence.

Abstract
Carl Rogers (1965) stated that "the organism reacts to the field as it is experienced and perceived. This perceptual field is, for the individual, 'reality 1 . 11 Thus, according to phenomenological theory, experience and perception determine reality and consequently behavior. The present study tests the assumption that perception is related to behavior. The validity of the a perception of violence task as a predictor of rated aggressive behavior is tested. Sex is included as an independent variable because no data are available on sex differences for perception of violence.
