Induced Aggression

Induced aggression is hostile behavior as a response to frustration, pain, fear, or other pertinent stimuli. For instance, fear-induced aggression is caused by previous unpleasant experiences or when escape is deemed impossible. This is also related with aggression due to self-defense like when a rape victim kills her attacker. Another example is maternal aggression; this is commonly observed among aggressive dogs who just gave birth.
