Background & Aim: The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of aggression on short-term memory and problem solving speed in adolescents in high school.
Material and Method: The research method was quasi-experimental with pre-test and post-test design with control group. The statistical population of the study consisted of all high school boys in Tehran in the second half of year 1397. We selected 44 students from two boys' high schools who were eager to play football by stratified random sampling. 22 of them in the experimental group and the next 22 in the control group were randomly assigned. In the first stage, aggression and short-term memory and problem solving questionnaires were administered as a pretest. After the game, all the subjects answered the questionnaires as a post-test. Data were analyzed using covariance analysis and SPSS-21 software.
Results: The results showed that after adjusting for pre-test scores, the mean scores of short-term memory, and problem solving style in the loser group was significantly lower than the control group (P <0.05). Also the mean scores of dysfunctional problem solving style in loser group were significantly higher than the winning group (P <0.05).
Conclusion: Feeling angry, tired, angry, and hostile, reduces short-term memory and inability to cope with problems and to solve everyday problems.
