The phenomenon of violence is also very complex and there are many factors that can or cannot induce violent behavior in a human being.
Many people have suggested that the individuals' personalities, their family backgrounds, their cultural, educational, and religious implications, all contribute to acts of violence.
These images of violence and anti-social behavior tend to entice the same in people who watch them.
It has been recognized that children who are continuously being exposed to violent images in the media tend to incorporate the ideas behind violence in their learning process.
It does not come as any surprise that a child between the age of two and five watches approximately 28 hours of television ever week .
Another thing that comes to mind is that there has been a lot of allowance of violence in the media ever since broadcasting was deregulated in 1980.It was noted that male children who watched only nonviolent shows on television were found to be generally more aggressive than those who had watched violence on television.Findings by other researchers, however, have suggested that there exists a complex relationship between interpersonal aggression and the watching of violent television programs.It has also been suggested that media has been responsible in making the children violent as well.Statistics have shown that an average person watches as much as 7 hours of television every day.Research that has been conducted in the field and also by correlation also provides some other important perspectives on this issue.These researches show that the images of violence viewed on television can have various different kinds of effects on the viewer and these effects largely depend on the personality of the viewer.It was also found that people who were high on the aggression list and those who saw violence in the media, took a longer time in coming down from their aggressive state than did high-aggressors who saw neutral or nonviolent images.On the other hand, those who were low on aggression and who saw nonviolent images became more aggressive than those who saw violence on television.According to some researchers, this was especially true when the violence was rewarded.Andison (1977) found that the effects on aggression by viewing violence on television are not necessarily more in children as compared to the adult viewers.
