Fight or Flight?

November 13, 2017

Could aggression be more rewarding than sex, food and drugs? The answer is yes, because of dopamine. Could this be why boxing and the martial arts have become a million dollar industry? 

 

"We learned from these experiments that an individual will intentionally seek out an aggressive encounter solely because they experience a rewarding sensation from it," stated Craig Kennedy, professor of psychology at Vanderbilt University. This could explain why, throughout history, legends such as Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali have been a source of fascination for many.

 

Aggression is necessary for our survival. It is good for our well-being if channeled in healthy ways.
