Why We Go Crazy For Cute?

New research has found that beautiful things inspire most of us not only the urge towards gentleness and care we have, but also a response known as cute aggression or desires, in which people response to cuteness physically. This is common to most of us I bet.

Have you ever reacted to the on sight of a “cute puppy” looking at you or “darling infant” by squealing while yelling I want to eat you up? Or maybe you can’t help by now but want to pinch your grandbaby’s adorable flappy cheeks? Let me tell you that you are not alone. The research found that the seemingly strange aggressive responses we give to cuteness are actually the norm. Maybe the cuteness causes a smear feeling in your senses that makes it vulnerable to it, and in away to distract you from that feeling, you seek to find humor in the pain that you might cause by hurting the cute object. Or perhaps it is a misguided, callous way of satisfying your desire to emotionally connect with said cute object.

People love verbalizing their aggressive desires using phrases like, “I just feel like squeezing something!” these same people really do act their feelings out openly. In the study, presented by a group self-proclaimed individuals on human behavior during their annual meeting of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, the researchers found that people watching slides showing adorable pictures popping more bubbles as time goes on a sheet of bubble wrap than did people viewing funny or neutral pictures.

Common sense tells that we always think it is about high positive-effect, and more effective approach orientation and almost if not at all a sense of lost self-control. Facts right from a well-known study researcher Rebecca Dyer, Yale University graduate student in psychology and sociology “You know, you can’t stand it, you can’t handle it, that kind of thing.”

The researcher developed interest in what she and her colleagues call “cute aggression” after conversations with fellow comrade on how adorable google pictures often generate the desires to squish or squeeze the cute critter. Many researches done on cuteness gives credit to the fact that the reaction should be the opposite against almost all the expectation of individuals. In reality people should want to treat a cute thing with gentleness and care.

And indeed, Dyer confirmed that, it’s not as usual do people really want to stumble on a basketful of puppies when they see the fur balls tumbling all over one another in the basket. Actually she said you can’t find a bunch of budding sycophants in their midst of researchers that one need to worry about them.

However, somethings unusual seem to be going on unknowingly. So to prove the existence and value of their research Dyer and compatriot, Yale merchandise graduate student Oriana Aragon, started formality of an experiment to foresee if cuteness aggression was a real phenomenon in live. Their research experiment involve recruiting one hundred and nine folks online to have a look at photos of cute, adorable, funny or neutral animals such as puppies. Then one might ask what a cute animal is? A simple and easily understood answer is that cute animal might be a fluffy puppy, while a cheeky animal could be a dog with its head out a car window with her long ears flapping. A more critic animal might be an older dog with a serious expression that scares people with his outlook.

The participants gave their rates on the pictures based on cuteness and funniness, as well as how influential the pictures are that make them lose control. To prove their critics, the participants had to come up with agreed statements and I quote “I can’t handle it!” The participants moved on to give their rates on the extent to which the pictures made them feel like saying something like ‘Arg!’ and “oh yea want to squeeze something.”

The resultant was that the cuter the animal, the lesser control and more desire to “arg” and squeeze something that people felt. Adorable animals produced the feelings more significantly stronger than that of funny animals. The funny creatures in turn expelled the feeling more strongly than did neutral animals, perhaps because the funny animals were perceived as cute, too.
Then what was their judgement from the results. According to other individuals the results might have been identified as verbal expression relating to cuteness compared to the real feeling and aggression. What of comparisons researches done on a group of participants that insinuated the study of motor activity and memory, and then gave the subjects sheets of bubble wrap. The participants were instructed to pop as many or as few bubbles as they wanted, just as long as they were doing something involving motion.

Alternatively in real life situation, most of us try so hard not to cause any harm to those animals they actually like so much or those animals of brain child experience as much as a child wanting to care for a cat might squeeze it too tightly hence getting scratched for the effort they enforce on the animal.

However, I do think the reason might not at times be specific to cuteness and aggression. Many people overwhelmingly express their positive emotions in such a way that they look negative, as do happen when Miss World sobs in joy while receiving her crown for her recognition presents. Such high levels of positive emotion may overwhelm people do extend of not taking food during the joyful moments.

The reason might revolve on how we communicate when overwhelm by the high positive emotions running down our spines to a sort of give it a negative pitch to satisfy our low self-esteem.
Truth is old I recall I had the same impulse during my young stage. I gave a strong doubt that it was abnormal at first, and never wanted to act on it, but I fully understood the essence of it. For me, it was more of a sense of dominance, of control, of taking ownership of that undeserving little ball of cuteness. source
