Behaviorists suggest that people learn by observing
how others respond to their behavior. Behavior takes certain forms due to
incentives or changes in the environment. One aspect of the theory of social
learning is the assertion that children copy their behavior following the
example of characters they see in movies and especially on television.
Many children consider television images to be real,
especially if they are presented in a convincing manner by adults (such as in
advertising). It is also worrying that some children, especially emotionally
upset, may not be able to distinguish between fantasy and reality when watching
television shows. The American Psychological Association and the National
Institute of Mental Health support the view of the connection between
television and violence are convinced that violence on the television screen
can directly determine aggressive antisocial behavior patterns.
Another psychological view of crime is that adolescent
deviant behavior is a consequence of a personality disorder or non-normality.
Types of personality that researchers consider
(excessively irrational fears);
(fear of losing control or going insane);
depressive psychosis, when an obsessive thought or image, irrational in nature,
is not controlled, and the patient has an irresistible urge to take any
decisive action in this regard;
multi-part personality, including as it were a few personalities, each of which
has a name and memory;
(confidence in the presence of a serious disease, although for this there are
(feeling of sadness, accompanied by loss of energy, self-evaluation, interest
in life, inability to concentrate, etc.);
(violation of thought, language, mood, and motor activity);
(constant violations of the rights of others, indifference to obligations,
violation of the law);
(sexual arousal in response to unusual or obscure objects and situations).
Stronger aggressiveness and cruelty is manifested in
children with a psychopathic personality, which is becoming more and more. This
is not about the crime gene, but about those pathological phenomena that can
contribute to manifestations of cruelty, hereditary diseases, and inferiority (Jeffrey, 1973).
It should be mentioned that social factors act on the
manifestation of cruelty more than biological. Therefore, the better a person
is brought up, the less the risk that a teenager he will torture people or
In addition, even the properties of a character associated
with some biological characteristics, in this case, will manifest less. He,
perhaps, will also have a desire for a cruel deed and inner fury but will try
to suppress it. The ability to pressure depends on the strength of the
deterrent moments and the desire to suppress is already on how much a person
understands that this is bad, how much the moral basis is developed in it.
If a person has not learned up to a certain age that
you cannot shout, you cannot steal, you cannot raise your hand against your
mother, it will never come. It is known that each function is formed at a
certain time. In normal education, a person does not commit evil or violence.
How many people in the world who live to old age and do not know that “someone
can be struck” (Ekareva, 1994).
