Although everyone is not competitive, everyone wants to have a happy marriage, but competitiveness is part of human nature and varies between men and women. The feeling of competitiveness is natural, but the intensity of the characteristics depends on how the parents raised their child. If the parents are competitive their children will most likely inherit that trait; as it is a learned characteristic. Regardless, everyone is in competition with each other because they are all part of the same dating game and who will end up with whom? Men are naturally more competitive than women and tend to go for the more appealing women.
Men tend to fall in love more quickly than women. Due to that fact that men 's friendships don 't involve self-disclosure, when they find this quality in a love relationship they sense it as something special. On the other hand, since women are able to share their feelings they are less likely to be as quick to view their relationship as love. There are also gender differences in the connection between love and sex. Men view sex as a means of expressing their love, whereas for a female to feel loved requires more than just sex.
The reason why women think this is because the genes in the female host have evolved the female to unconsciously know this about the male body and a poor father’s mean that’s the genes have a lower chance of being able to survive in the host. The same thing about why women prefer high prestige men for long-term commitments, and dominant men for short-term sexual affairs, high prestige men are better for raising a child, a more dominant man is only good for getting a healthy child. Our genes like both options however will prefer the high prestige man because a higher chance of the gene being able to survive in the hosts
In the past, it was thought that women were judged by their appearance, and men were judged by their action. Women were supposed to care more about their appearance than men. In fact, it was considered feminine for men to take a great amount of time on their appearance because historically, it has been considered feminine to be on display. While their still is some stigma today against men caring too much about their appearance, it is becoming more acceptable for men to care about their appearance. With that, men are also being judged more on how they look by women and by society.
Female brains are good at verbal tasks and males’ brains are better adapted for mathematical and visual-spatial tasks. Men give preference to action whereas women prefer talking. To say that women and men fundamentally differ when it comes to communicating is nothing but a false belief. But still, such myths have taken their roots firmly in workplaces. A call center manager once told he prefers to hire females since he wanted someone who could interact with people in a better way.
In the society we live in today, the general culture that has merged the idea that there are very distinct differences between men and women. Consistent with these messages, men and women have a habit to observe each other in ways that are nearly identical with the common gender stereotypes (Vogel, Wester, Heesacker, & Madon, 2003). For instance, men are looked at as having more powerful sex drives and as being a lot more tolerant of extramarital sex (Oliver & Hyde, 1993). Women are considered to want to be committed to one person because they would get a lot more positives in being in a devoted relationship rather than being single (Peplau & Spalding, 2000). There have been numerous theoretical perspectives that have been employed to clarify the causes of what have been considered sex differences in relationship attitudes and behaviors.
Kate apparently values handsome features over other qualities in a husband, as she explicitly says she places such characteristics foremost, and therefore above all others. She also desires a sensible and good-natured husband, but she puts this second to youth and beauty. Her preference for a good-looking husband is also made apparent when she tells her father, “He must have more striking features to catch me, I promise you. However, if he be so young, so handsome, and so everything, as you mention, I believe he’ll do still. I think I’ll have him,” (Goldsmith 4).
Although it can be argued that men and women are not at the same level, the gap between them has been reduced. Men do not want to women to outshine them for reasons other than being cruel. There are exceptions to every case, but for the most part, it is done without thinking that it can hurt a woman. A man’s ego, and to impress friends are key factors as to why men try to be superior. Saying that men don’t let women outshine them for their own self-image may sound sh... ... middle of paper ... ...h genders can act like they know what is going on when they truly do not.
Moreover, this large difference in time depending on the sex of the model increased when models were very attractive. In contrast, heterosexual women claimed to be attracted to both sex of models, and their “attractions and viewing times to both sexes increased with models’ attractiveness.” Moreover, in comparison to men, the difference between women’s viewing time of models of differing sexes was much smaller. Reading this research, I could not help but wonder whether or not this sort of aversion towards their own sex had to deal with the constant societal pressure for men not to be “fags” or for them to not look at other men. In a video I watched titled, “Tough Guise,” Jackson Katz and other men interviewed used the term “fag” to describe what one would be called if he did not measure up to a “real man.” Being a “fag” was looked down upon in comparison to being a “real man,” which was described as a guy who was strong, athletic, tough, etc. Additionally, according to Think, hegemonic masculinity refers to the “ideal, dominant standard of masculinity for which men are to aim.” In the United States, popular culture media representations provide a clear picture of ideal masculinity.
It has also been shown that intervening and informing individuals about adjustments made to images and giving them facts about what the actual body looks like, will increase their level of body satisfaction. It is hypothesized that when males are exposed to muscular figures portrayed in the media, their body esteem will decrease but a combination of psychoeducation and self-monitoring intervention will help reverse the negative effects that media has on male body-esteem. Background and Significance Research has shown that the exposure of unattainable body idealism is detrimental to all people, especially women (Cash & Henry, 1995). The effects of media on body-image cannot only have physical effects but also psychological consequences (Cash & Pruzinsky, 2002), such as social anxiety, low self-esteem and depression. As a response, research has focused on treatment and intervention of low body dissat... ... middle of paper ... ..._ ________________________________________________________ BELIEFS (My thoughts and interpretations of the event/situation): ___________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________ CONSEQUENCES (My emotional and behavioral reactions): Types of emotions I felt/ Intensity of emotions (0 = not at all intense to of emotions 10 = extremely intense)/ Duration of emotions __________________________ ________ ________ __________________________ ________ ________ __________________________ ________ ________ Effects on my behavior (what I did): ________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________
