• In order to investigate the hypothesis that 8-year old boys are more aggressive
than 8-year old girls, 8-year old children were observed playing in schoolyards and
incidents of certain aggressive behaviors were recorded. 2)It was assumed that
aggressive behavior consisted of the following: i) pushing, ii) kicking and hitting, iii)
cursing, and iv) chasing. 3)As can be seen from the table above, the average 8-
year old boy was more aggressive than the 8-year old girls. 4)Chasing was the one
behavior that was more pronounced for the girls. 5)This result, however, does not
disprove the theory since chasing seems to be a less aggressive behavior than the
other behaviors that were tested. 6The 8-year old boys got more involved with
the more aggressive behavior, which is kicking/hitting, much more than the 8-
year old girls.
