Fighting is a form of intense or heated physical or verbal engagement with another who disagrees with you on a specified topic or point. Unlike debating, fighting with another person does not necessarily imply a goal of reaching an agreement, and depending on the context of the fight, they have the potential to do damage, typically emotionally or relationally, and can possibly escalate to physical endangerment. Not to be alarmed, fighting is often considered a normal—if not necessary—component to the vast majority of intimate relationships, and when properly resolved can result in a stronger overall bond between the parties involved.
The winner of the fight goes to the person who is willing to take the most pain and stay in the fight the longest. Surprise, speed, and violence of action will aid in physical, mental, and emotional superiority over your opponent.
Fight or flight is an instinctive physiological reaction that is in response to a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival. The body’s sympathetic nervous system is activated due to the sudden release of hormones, and it helps someone to fight the threat or flee to safety.
Cats are territorial animals that will fight to defend their believed territory. Some cats are aggressive and they act out their aggression by picking fights with other cats. Further, other cats may look like they are fighting and letting out aggression, but they may be just playing.
