This study examined the relation between working memory with reactive aggression and between punishment insensitivity with proactive aggression. This study tested whether these relations could be explained by social information processing (SIP) patterns. Participants were presented with interactive Virtual Reality scenarios to assess their SIP. They also performed computer tasks and teachers filled in a questionnaire about their aggressive behavior. Results showed that working memory was negatively associated with reactive aggression, this relation was not explained by a hostile attributional style. Punishment insensitivity was found to be positively associated with proactive aggression, this relation was not explained by instrumental goals.
