GENDER DIFFERENCES IN MATE SELECTION Evolutionary theory is often invoked to exp

GENDER DIFFERENCES IN MATE SELECTION
Evolutionary theory is often invoked to explain gender differences in mate selection. If the motive to reproduce explains men’s attraction to young (pretty) women and women’s attraction to financially stable men—as evolutionary psychologists claim—then how does it explain the increasing number of women who do not depend on men for financial stability because they are themselves economically independent?
Or, how does one explain the increasing number of women who choose not to have children? If they do not plan to have children, then they certainly do not need a financially stable mate committed to the long-term care of offspring they do not intend to have. Or, how can evolutionary theory explain the increasing number of women who are not married yet have children?
For this Discussion, you will examine conditions that influence diffusion of responsibility from the perspective of mate selection.
TO PREPARE
Review the Learning Resources for this week and examine how social psychology theories and research explain mate selection.
Compare evolutionary theory and social psychology theories as they apply to mate selection.
BY DAY 3
Post whether or not the rules of attraction change for women as a function of their economic independence. Explain whether or not the rules of attraction are biological imperatives or cultural constructions, or both. Please use social psychology theory to refute claims based on evolutionary theory.
BY DAY 5
Respond to at least one of your colleagues in the following way:
Informed by social psychology theory and research, explain how your colleague’s analysis might differ if applied cross-culturally.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the social psychology theory and research. In addition to the Learning Resources, search the Library and/or Internet for peer-reviewed articles to support your post and responses. Use proper APA format and citations, including those in the Learning Resources.
Note: For this Discussion, you are required to complete your initial post before you will be able to view and respond to your colleagues’ postings.

DIFFUSION OF RESPONSIBILITY
For this Discussion, you will examine conditions that influence diffusion of responsibility. Consider the following scenario of Brenda:
Brenda was completing a 1-year internship in Baltimore. Luckily, she found an apartment not far from school. To get some exercise, acquaint herself with her new surroundings, and listen to her music, she walked to and from school every day. The 2-mile route took her past Johns Hopkins University, an extremely busy campus teeming with students and passersby. On her way home one day, music blasting in her ears, Brenda suddenly found herself head down in a muddy ravine right in front of the university’s main quad. Someone had come up from behind and pushed her…hard. She was not hurt, but at that moment, she was head down, feet sticking up in the air, in full view of everyone on the Hopkins’ campus. Attempting to right herself, she wondered why none of the many onlookers offered their assistance.
TO PREPARE
Review the Learning Resources for this week and examine how social psychology theory and research explain the diffusion of responsibility.
Consider the reasons why none of the onlookers stopped to help Brenda.
BY DAY 4
Post an explanation about why none of the onlookers offered their assistance. Your explanation must be informed by social psychology theory and research.
BY DAY 6
Respond to at least one of your colleagues in the following way:
If you were Brenda, how might you have solicited help from one of the many bystanders? Your explanation must be informed by social psychology theory and research.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the social psychology theory and research. In addition to the Learning Resources, search the Library and/or Internet for peer-reviewed articles to support your post and responses. Use proper APA format and citations, including those in the Learning Resources.

Many college students study by simply repeating their notes over and over (rote rehearsal). Although this method is good for processing data into STM there are other means to effectively move material into LTM. Make sure to read the How To Study Effectively section in Chapter 8. Now, in one to two paragraphs discuss how you currently prepare for exams and how you might incorporate 4 additional techniques that are discussed in the text into your studying behavior. Make sure to cite your text appropriately.

Everyone’s talking about ChatGPT—another new disruptive technology! How will it

Everyone’s talking about ChatGPT—another new disruptive technology! How will it affect us and our work? Who knows—after all, we still haven’t grappled with all of the consequences of the technology we already have.
Speaking of which, briefly describe an experiment you could run that would test one of these hypotheses (you can pick either one):
People asked to work on a cognitively demanding (that is, complicated or difficult) task will perform worse if their smartphones are within their visual field while they’re working on the task (in other words, when they can see their smartphones) than if their smartphones are hidden from view.
People who are made to think about or read something related to social rejection will feel more of an urge to check their smartphones than people who are made to think about or read something related to being socially accepted.
Again, come up with an idea for a study to test one of those hypotheses. In your paper, in addition to describing how the experiment would be conducted, explicitly state—
1. How you operationalized your independent variable and how you operationalized your dependent variable (see pp. 78-79 in the Dunn readings),
2. Whether your experiment is between-subjects or within subjects (see pp. 92-104 in the Dunn readings and the class slides from 1/26), and
3. Just to show that you know a good experiment from a bad one, come up with an idea for a confound you could include in your experiment that would mess it up and make it less valid (see the class slides from 1/26)! For example, one way would be to run all males in one condition and all females in the other. But now you can’t use that idea…
