Describe a situation where you were aggressive with another individual

Describe a situation where you were aggressive with another individual.  Remember that aggression is defined as any behavior carried out with the intention of harming another and that aggression takes on many forms (e.g., physical, verbal, and non-verbal).  Select a theory of aggression that best explains why you are aggressed in the situation.  Theories:  Aggression as an innate tendency; Aggression as an elicited drive: a modified version of frustration-aggression hypothesis; Aggression as a reaction to aversive events: cognitive neoassociationist view; aggression as a learned social behavior; direct provocation, the role of mitigating circumstances and attributions; excitation transfer: heightened arousal and aggression.
