  • Environmental Factors - How you were raised plays a big role in how your behavior is shaped. If you have grown up witnessing more forms of aggression, it is likely that you knowingly or unknowingly make it a part of your behavioral pattern.
  • Physical Factors - Epilepsy, psychosis, dementia, alcohol abuse, drug use and brain injuries or abnormalities can also influence aggression.
