- Freud's theory on psychology points to an instincual desire for self preservation as a cause for heightened agression. In that case, exposing yourself to agression that you know can't hurt you would normalize it consequently removing the need for you to act agressively.
- A second cause is exposure to violence from a young age. This could be in the form of either constant family conflict, a neighbourhood where you had to be tough to survive or even bullying and harrassment. Growing up in such situations conditions one to react agressively in preparation for an attack that may not even be coming. And since your brain is already used to being under attack, when an attack doesn't come one is liable to start conflict just to feel as if things are normal . Again, exposure to similar agression online might provoke some internal reflection or at least allow someone to wear themselves out without bringing it into their personal lives.
- Another cause is low impulse control and the only way to fix this one is practice, The more arguments you get into , the more chances you have to see how you react and how you can improve.
- The final reason is low conditionability . This just means you have a lower ability to comply and learn the rules of society. You therefore find it harder to see the other side of the argument. In such a situation, seeking proffesional help is advised after which you could use the app to help yourself learn to accept the logic of others.
