Summary This study explores emotion and aggressive behaviour in a male-dominated organisation, an Australian police force. The study examines the extent to which men's negative emotions are directly associated with their reported experience of aggressive behaviour. One hundred and fifty-nine male participants answered a questionnaire which measured: the intensity of negative feelings, whether or not the intensity of such negative feelings was directly associated with the experience of aggression, and the magnitude of the aggressive behaviour.
