    Hi, I have researched for a long time but have only found that weather indirectly causes higher violence, and the they said it is from people spending more time outside. I'm looking for a study that says hot weather directly effects the human mind and may increase violence risk. Any input at all please is welcome. Thanks.

    I've noticed being at sea for prolonged time that while "returning to society" the people behave more aggressive in traffic, directly related to the outside temperature.
    I think it has to do with stress tolerances being inflicted by temperature, don't know of any study that confirms the observations.

    I haven't seen any studies that show that people are more violent due to any biological reason. I have seen some studies that show violence increases because opportunity increases; it is more difficult to commit violent crimes when everyone is inside a building or a car due to the temperature.

    Wait. Didn't you just say that YOU have researched this:
    I have researched for a long time but have only found that weather indirectly causes higher violence
    Does the fact that you're now looking for studies mean that all of your research is original and not based on any other studies?
    I'm lost here. help me out.

    There's Google: "hot weather increase in violent crimes", which produces quite a number of results. Including this one: ...results also fit with a sociological rather than psychological [or "physical" - my comment] explanation.
