Conversely, it is men -who mostly express "powerful emotions" as wrath or despise- who cause conflicts more frequently. This is the conclusion described in an article published in the journal Intervenci-n Psicosocial prepared by professors from the Department of Social Psychology of the University of Granada, Inmaculada Valor Segura, Francisca Exp-sito y Miguel Moya.
