(Phys.org) —Researchers Uri Gneezy, with the University of California and Alex Imasc with the University of Amsterdam have together found that men understand the impact anger has on decision making and use that knowledge to help them manipulate other men when engaging in contests of both skill and strength. They have had their paper describing a study they conducted on the subject printed in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

“University of California and the University of Amsterdam”

I can’t imagine a more liberal, more feminized university combination than those two institutions of lower living.

Then there’s Hillary with her FAKE flash of anger, attempting to divert attention from the abandonment of four Americans: “What difference does it make ....?”

From the end of the article:

” Oddly, the researchers chose to not interview the volunteers to learn whether they were using anger intentionally or if it was an inadvertent response that came about without them having to even think about it.”

No face to face interaction...........................what a bunch of pussies.

That's some study. I guess machismo and masculinity of men has so been lost by our nanny state culture that this is now foreign to the human race and in need of study?

Wow; I wonder if anyone ever suggested this as a tactic for football and basketball coaches.

“p*ss!es”

Please don’t use that word to describe a weakling.

That part of a woman is both beautiful and unbelievably strong, all at the same time. There is no more beautiful proof of the genius and love of our Creator than when He made woman to be the perfect companion of man.

May I suggest they go to a Philadelphia Eagles game or a Oakland Raiders game and start calling the local fans names...hell, even the Eagles and Raiders females are more manly than most men found in in berzerkly.

Manipulation and anger.....This must have been done in Chicago....

The old "I'm gonna beat the sh** out of you if you don't give me your wallet."

Then there are the cops that got away with beating up that homeless man.

LOL.

But see, if the grant junkies had asked that question, then they wouldn't be able to apply for Phase II calling for further study.

Having said that, I’m suer these “researchers” probably got beat up on the playground on a regular basis.

In general, I've found that men who can't control their anger, can't control their schlong, can't control their drinking, can't control almost anything else.

I have zero trust and zero respect for them and will go out of my way to avoid doing business with them.

A person who is fully driven by their appetites and passions is most likely a liberal and not a real man or woman.

"Can't control" being the operative note there, we agree. That said, there are a great many techniques and strategies to employ when negotiating in business. Using anger can be effective in some circumstances. But it is tricky and should be a calculated and intended use as opposed to "out of control". Those who use it constantly are typically not that good at negotiating and are far less successful. Those of us that have been around a while are not easily intimidated and will use that hyper state of aggression and emotion against you. ;o)

They needed to research it to figure that out???? I knew that in the first grade. I learned a long, long time ago that some people will do what you let them get away with. When somebody tries to throw a fit of anger on me, I immediately jump right back in their $h!+. About 99.9% back down in a nanosecond, and they won’t F’ with you anymore after that. You just have to have the guts to call their bluff.

In spite of what the libtards say, this is not a warm, fuzzy world we live in. They ought to know better than anybody. They are doing everything they can to make slaves out of the rest of us. . . and we have to call their hand on it.

"men use anger as manipulation tool with other men"

Only in academia would stating what everyone already knows be regarded as a newsworthy research finding. Obviously, expressions of anger are often intended to emphasize a point in order to change ("manipulate") behavior. And don't women do the same?

No.

I think it’s an immature slang word.

Anyone who doesn’t think women use anger to try to manipulate has not met some of my old girlfriends. Hell hath no fury . . . .

Absolutely correct. Controlled anger can be highly effective if used sparingly.

The best example is Jesus Christ driving the money changers from the temple. It is, I believe, the only example of him showing anger in the New Testament.

I see it as a female thing more than a male thing and also as a leftist thing more than a conservative thing.

Your post said you wish for that word to not be used to describe a weakling...then went on to extoll praises on female genitalia. That sounded to me like you accept the word as slang for female genitalia, yet despise it as slang for a weakling.

Therefore, I asked if you were kidding.
