Tendencias y relaciones en los patrones de comportamiento violento en los grupos

Translated title of the contribution: Tendency and relationships in violent behavior patterns in groups

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Different daily sequences of violent behavior over a period of 28 days were obtained by means of self-records in a group of 25 participants who maintained close relationships among them. By cluster analysis of cumulated violent behavior sequences, participants were divided into 3 groups of homogeneous subjects in these sequences. Representative sequences for each group were determined. Such sequences showed a progressive increase of violent behavior episodes. Next, the tendency of representative sequences was estimated. The best-adjusted model was a cubic polynomial one. Then, cross correlations between these sequences, removing the tendency, were obtained. The greater correlation among violent behaviors in the same day or in 3-5 days was obtained. Finally, through a discriminating analysis, the influence of sincerity variables (evaluated by means of Eysenck's EPQ sincerity scale), irrational beliefs (evaluated by means of Malouff & Shutte's BF), physical aggression, verbal aggression, anger and hostility (evaluated by means of Buss & Perry's aggression questionnaire), marital status and health condition were estimated together with the feeling of belonging to a specific group. The percentage of accurate prediction reached 88%. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
