During our normal office relations, why do we become aggressive sometimes to our fellow workers?

    Because under pressure we forget people don't really know how we feel at that instant. So we lash at them for being ignorant, in our eyes.

    Because we're social animals. In any social grouping, the animals are constantly testing and re-enforcing their status in the group. ON occasion such a test is an attempt to "rise in the ranks", as in a situation in which a beta male challenges an alpha male for leadership of the group.

    The existing power structure is sometimes referred to as the "pecking order", after the behavior birds in flocks.

    If you think of us as nothing more than groups of complicated baboons, our behavior isn't all that difficult to understand.

    Survival of the top dog. Aggression occurs when we feel threatened.

    Because people are jerks. Almost all of them almost all of the time. Jerks.

    I do it if someone doesn't give enough of respect.
