Title: Defining Fear And Aggression: Typological Emotive Responses To Perceptions Of Textual Symbols
Author: Salazar, Donna Lynn
Abstract: Millennial technology has shed new light on early biological theories of crime. Recent evidence supports a new paradigm in criminological research designed to embrace an integration of neuro-scientific, psychological, and sociological theories in order to understand the multi-dimensional characteristics of causality involved in criminal behavior. The current study explores the value of an integrated approach to define typological fear and aggression emotive responses utilizing symbolic interaction as the mechanism by which the various disciplines interact. Through perceptions of emotionally charged textual symbols, typological representations of fear and aggression, and a 3-Part electronic survey instrument, the study reveals support for an integrated approach, variations in perceptions between non-white and white respondents, as well as possibilities that some respondents may not recognize emotional trigger symbols.
