Abstract

This study investigated whether exposure to nature can weaken the effect of ostracism on aggression. We found that ostracized participants who viewed nature pictures behaved less aggressive than their ostracized counterparts who viewed urban pictures. This finding suggests that nature can help to buffer the detrimental impacts of ostracism.
