It can be very reinforcing for the individual to see that the event/situation and the expression of anger with aggression are useful in the behaviorist school compared to the ABC model. Showing power to the other side, intimidating, gaining superiority and thus displaying an angry view or resorting to violence is an antisocial act, but it is not uncommon. According to the results experienced in the behavior of the learned anger to find a word with aggression, the rewards may be to intimidate the other party, to give the other party superiority, and may act as positive reinforcement. In order to increase the reward of intimidation and superiority, the behavior chosen at the word of anger may be reinforced as a violent behavior and the frequency and/or intensity of violence may increase. ABCs compete at any moment, there may be other reinforcements we do not know, the rewards of this behavior may be to intimidate the other party, to speak of anger by gaining superiority, and the result may be that the individual feels appropriate by venting the anger with aggression.
