Summary/Abstract: The global social change sets complicated problems for contemporary Bulgarian people, their moral and psychological endurance. Systematic analysis on the social stressors, which are connected with every-day tension of the people, is proposed in this research (914 subjects). These stressors are political, economical, professional, communicative, interpersonal tensions and so on. The most spread phenomenon appears to be so-called „fear from violence”, which is formed in the moral and political sphere of the social psychic. The expectations of professional difficulties, of unemployment are ones of the strong stressors. The force of this kind of tension is related specifically to social-demographic characteristics of the subjects. The aggressive behavior investigated here as possible behavioral style in stressful situations appears to be in opposite interrelations with the stressors and these facts are in contradiction with some researches in this field. At the same time the stress and aggression are related positively on the basis of concrete attitudes of the respondents. So, we can accept that specific political moods provocate aggressive actions, regardless of the presence of the fear from violence, of hostility, which is attributed to the social situation.
