Is doing something to spite someone the same as deliberately trying to get them mad?

oftentimes, yes, but not always. for example, if a parent tells a child they can't have a cookie, the child may take the cookie anyways because they're mad at them and want to cause a reaction. but if your parent tells you you can't pursue your dream of becoming a successful artist, then you may pursue it anyways to spite them, not necessarily to make them mad, but to prove to them and yourself that you could do it.
