Observing Gender Communication Differences - Several weeks ago I observed a woman at the Mall. She and a young man sitting directly across from each other were engaged in what was apparently a mutual flirting. But the younger man seemed much more confident and cocky than did the woman.

The woman also had a strong tendency to look down more often than the man. Although her admiration for him was obvious, she seemed to be trying hard to conceal it....   [tags: Gender Differences in Communication] 524 words

Many believe that gender plays a major role in communication but in all reality, that isn’t the case.

Do Gender Differences Exist in Infancy? Where Do the Differences Come From? - Fetuses of most vertebrate species are behaviorally active before birth. This is illustrated every day with ultrasounds at doctor visits, or when an individual feels an infant move inside of the womb. Historically, spontaneous leg movements were thought to have been random and reflexive in nature (Heathcock, Bhat, Lobo, & Galloway, 2005). More recently, however, researchers have suggested that movements in early infancy play an important role in motor learning and motor skill acquisition later in life (Heathcock et al., 2005)....   [tags: development of boy and girls, fetuses] 3610 words

Gender Differences and Gender Stereotypes from a Psychological Perspective - Gender Differences and Gender Stereotypes from a Psychological Perspective Gender Differences and Gender Stereotypes Gender differences and gender stereotypes are fascinating in that one must sift through the theories, assumptions and inevitable confusion to distinguish the reality from the assumption.

Even more interesting is to observe how the differences between men and women have evolved, especially over the past 30 years- since the sexual revolution....   [tags: essays papers] 1082 words

The Problems of Sociolinguistic Studies of Gender Differences - The Problems of Sociolinguistic Studies of Gender Differences Introduction It has long been assumed that women and men differ in their use of language. These differences are supposed to represent (and perpetuate) the social divisions between women and men. Few researchers will disagree that women and men’s speech styles are different, though they may disagree as to what extent or as to what these differences may mean. Expecting to find such differences, I began a study of a two-hour conversation with my family....   [tags: Sociology Sociological Papers]

Gender Differences in Susan Glaspell's Trifles - Gender Differences in Trifles     Susan Glaspell's play, "Trifles", attempts to define one of the main behavioral differences between man and woman. For most of the story, the two genders are not only geographically separated, but also separated in thought processes and motive, so that the reader might readily make comparisons between the two genders. Glaspell not only verbally acknowledges this behavioral difference in the play, but also demonstrates it through the characters' actions and the turns of the plot....   [tags: Trifles Susan Glaspell]

Use of Computers by Middle School Students Within The Context of Gender Differences - The article by Miller, Schweingruber, & Brandenburg (2001) examines the use of computers by middle school students within the context of gender differences. The authors establish through a literature review that in the past there has been an actual or perceived gender divide in computer prowess. While the nature of the survey questions in the study seem to establish that they seek to examine whether this gender gap still exists, no clear research question with defined parameters is stated and the focus of their conclusions and scope of their discussion seems to me to be outside their research context....   [tags: Technology]

Effects of Levels of Processing, Context, and Gender Differences in Recall Memory - Over the years, several models have been proposed to explain the nature of memory processes (e.g., Atkinson & Shiffrin, 1968; Craik & Lockhart, 1972; Estes & Maddox, 1995; Raajimakers & Shiffrin, 1981). One of those models, level of processing, proposed that the duration that information can be held in the memory depends on the depth at which it is processed, not the stage of memory in which it is held. A study by Smith, Theodore, and Franklin (1983) examined this hypothesis by investigating how depth of processing affect the amount of processing obtained in the processing of a target item in a lexical detection task (LDT) by college students....   [tags: duration, information, processing]
