Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine how death anxiety (MS) affects physical and verbal aggression toward an opposing team or referees during a recreational soccer match. Results indicated a trend towards inaccurate self-reported aggression, such that participants in the MS group were less accurate when reporting aggressive behavior than the dental pain control group: Participants in the MS group reported being less aggressive than was actually observed by the rater. Gender patterns in aggression (actual vs. self-report) are also discussed.
