Science reveals why your partner takes you more seriously when you are aggressive

They say "opposites attract" and that's what we truly believe in while choosing our partner. But the realisation comes later that when two completely opposite human beings, in terms of behaviour and choices, come together -it leads to various complicated consequences.

Soon they begin to argue and fight failing to understand each other. Some cases are easily resolved and others take a worse turn.

To avoid the later situation, we advise you to go other and revive your love and then take things step-by-step for resolving the issue. The foremost important tip to not let the things slip away from your hands is to not shout or respond to your partner in an aggressive voice.

This is because, as per a new study, human brains notice a voice much faster when it is considered threatening or aggressive than when it is perceived as normal or happy in an auditory environment.

The study demonstrated that in a few hundred milliseconds, our brain becomes sensitive to the presence of angry voices. 

Sight and hearing are the two senses that allow human beings to detect threatening situations.

"We are interested in how fast our attention responds to the different intonations of the voices around us and how our brain deals with potentially threatening situations," said Nicolas Burra, a researcher from the University of Geneva in Switzerland. 

The researchers presented 22 short human voice sounds (600 milliseconds) that were neutral utterances or expressed either anger or joy to a small group of people while an electroencephalogram (EEG) diagnostic test measured electrical activity in the brain down to the millisecond. 

The findings, published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, revealed that when the brain perceives an emotional target sound, N2ac activity is triggered after 200 milliseconds. 

However, when it perceives anger, the N2ac intensifies and lasts longer, which is not the case for joy.

N2ac is a component related to the focusing of attention within an auditory scene. 

Also, LPCpc activity -a cerebral marker of auditory attention is also stronger for angry than for happy voices, findings revealed. 

This rapid detection of the source of a potential threat in a complex environment is essential as it is "critical in crisis situations and a great advantage for our survival", noted Leonardo Ceravolo, a researcher from the varsity.

Thus, act calm during a fight with your partner to not let things get worse for both of you!
