Developing Aggression

My personality is very laid back and non aggressive. Frankly, it's hard for me to find my aggressive, fighting core, and I am looking for ways to learn to tap into that. (My instructor is always saying things like, "Don't ask him if he's alright! I want to see you hit that guy!") One way I've learned to bring out my fighting energy is to listen to high-energy aggressive music when I train. I have two questions for you all:

1) How have you learned to "flip the switch" and generate a fighting aggression within you?

2) What do you listen to when you train?
