...Gender Identity Every sexual thought, attraction,preference, development, feeling, memory, fantasy, and choice stem from complex brain activity. A complex genetic code determines body type; but that type does not always dictate sexual identity. Sexual identity is an even more complex development that encompasses hormone levels, social learning, individual perception, and attraction. Humans are born genetically male or female; but that does not necessarily control which sexual identity the individual will discover. Planned Parenthood (2012) defines gender identity as how a person feels about and expresses his or her gender; despite genetic or natural gender assignment. Some humans are genetically male or female and identify with the traditional gender roles; but others may find that the traditional cultural norms do not match their feelings or thoughts. Sexual identity is the sexual part of human expression that does not include ideas like sexual orientation, sexual preference, physical gender, or body type. If an individual considers his or her gender as female and is at ease with referring to his or her individual sexual characteristics in feminine terms, his or her gender identity is female. Gender identity has nothing to do with the physical characteristics of gender; but focuses on how the individual thinks (either masculine or feminine) and how he or she expresses those feelings. Ghosh (2012) explains gender identity as “self-identified, as a result of a......

...Gender Identity Frank Sagasta August 31, 2014 Psychology 265 Dr. David Mohr Abstract I will discuss the path of gender identity and the reviews of what certain people believe. You will see the three different influences of gender identity. These are the three areas of gender identity: anatomy of the genitals, relationship of child to parent, and biological. In addition to physical abnormalities due to genetic and hormonal influences or environmental influences. Something, interesting is the fact that most people believe that gender identity starts with the development through the time of puberty. Here're the factors that determine gender identity. Our gender identity is our psychological awareness or sense of being male or being female, and it’s one of the most obvious and important aspects of our self-concepts. Sex assignment “also called gender assignment” reflects the child’s anatomic sex and usually occurs at birth. A child’s sex is so important to parents that they usually want to know “Is it a boy or a girl?” before they count fingers and toes (Rathus, 2011). Our text was able to exhibit the gender identity that starts with the Y sex chromosome from the both sex. It also assisted with the understanding of the X chromosome from the mother and either a Y or X chromosome from the father, which will join. If the male transmits an X chromosome during fertilization, then the “zygote” will be female, and if the male transmits a Y chromosome, then......

...subject of gender is discussed in terms of masculinity and femininity rather than in the context of males and females. Matters of being male and female are discussed within the term “sex”, which bears some distinctive characteristics of gender (UN, n.d.). From a personal perspective, gender is an important aspect of humanity as it can, when approached in a healthy and inclusive way, provide a balanced prevalence of both masculine and feminine characteristics in the human societies. In a situation where gender is not in existence or does not bear the importance it has today, human life would be altered to take another form. Of particular interest, in this case, is the interaction of human beings without considering their masculine or feminine characteristics. Ultimately, there would be certain imbalances, competition and effects at a personal level if gender did not exist or bear any importance in the human societies. In the actual arrangement of human interactions and the prevailing social order, masculinity is supposed to combine with femininity in order to create a balance that is mutually beneficial for both genders since the two genders are characterized by distinctive qualities that are naturally meant to substantiate each other (Jackson and Scott, 2002). For instance, the masculine gender is characterized by physical strength and general resilience in accommodating hard and difficult tasks, such as lifting heavy load. On the other hand, the feminine gender is......

Mobile Preference

...mobile phones in India grew 3.6 percent to reach 40 million units during the quarter ended Sep 30, according to IDC’s India quarterly mobile handsets tracker, 3Q 2010. According to the study, Finnish handset maker Nokia had the largest share of 31.5 percent in terms of units shipped during the quarter. While the emerging vendors captured 41.2 percent combined share of the market. Chinese brand ‘G’Five’ followed Nokia in terms of units shipped share and Korean handset manufacturer Samsung occupied the third position. The study also showed a strong quarter on quarter growth in Smartphone sales of 34.2 percent, and a year on year rise of 294.9 percent. This clearly underscores that India mobile handset buyers have started showing higher preference for Smartphone. Thanks to increased competition, the prices of the Smartphone also dropped through the year. Over 80 percent of total Smartphone sales were below the average sales value of Rs.18, 000 in the second quarter of the year while this proportion increased to 90 percent in the third quarter. ‘The India mobile handsets market got even more crowded and fragmented in the lower- and mid-market segments with the further entry of new players offering innovative models at attractive price points to lure buyers,’ said Anirban Banerjee, associate vice president, research, IDC India. ‘The propensity to adopt feature phones and Smartphone is greatest amongst the youth and business executive segments, whose purchase decisions are often...

My dislike is pubic speaking; it has been a very difficult thing to do throughout my entre life. Public speaking is some what terrifying to me and I would try to run the other way every time. Describe the subfield (e.g., cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, psychoanalytic psychology, etc.) you believe is best suited for providing psychological insight into your preference (the fact that you like or dislike the thing you do) and why you believe it is so. I would choose Experimental psychology for my subfield. I believe it would relate to my fear of public speaking. The Experimental psychology is pertaining to all basic psychological process including perception, learning and motivation. My main fear of public speaking is based of the perception of others. And all I can think at the time is what they think of me and what I am saying. The learning part would be based of the passed my childhood. I could of learned the to fear public speaking due to other around me fearing it as well. And the motivational peace of it could come from no one acutely motivating me and teaching me how not to fear public speaking.

...of the entire setting of the store/outlet on the emotional reaction of the customers and their approach to purchase and loyalty, when all components of the store environment traditionally identified by music, lighting, colour, smell, temperature, decorative, etc. come into play together, is limited. Problem Statement: Theoretical frameworks to adequately determine the effect of surrounding or store ambiance in consumer behaviour are lacking which leads managers to depend on their intuitions while designing the store area. This leads to a selection of specific design without knowing the effect of that design on consumer preference. Such selections are vulnerable and may not give the desired outcome in terms of customer preference. Research Question: The aim of the research is to determine the components of store ambiance that influence the customer preference and to understand and establish the relationship of customers’ behaviour on these components of store ambiance....

Micro-Macro Linkages Between Gender, Development, and Growth: Implications for the Caribbean Region Abstract Over the last two decades, scholars have investigated the two-way relationship between gender inequality on the one hand, and economic development and growth on the other. Research in this area offers new ways to address the economic stagnation and crisis developing countries have experienced over the last two decades. This paper contributes to that literature, exploring the channels by which gender inequality affects, and in important ways, constrains economic development and growth in the Caribbean region. It further explores the endogeneity of gender inequality to the macroeconomic policy environment. The paper concludes with a discussion of economic policies that can promote a win-win outcome—greater gender equality......

...p551(22) Advertising's effects on men's gender role attitudes. Jennifer Garst; Galen V. Bodenhausen. Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 1997 Plenum Publishing Corporation We posited that media images of men influence the gender role attitudes that men express soon after exposure to the images. A total of 212 men (87% European American, 7% Asian or Asian American, 3% African American, and 3% other) viewed magazine advertisements containing images of men that varied in terms of how traditionally masculine vs. androgynous they were and whether the models were the same age or much older than the viewers. Men who had initially been less traditional espoused more traditional attitudes than any other group after exposure to traditionally masculine models, although they continued to endorse relatively nontraditional views after exposure to androgynous models. These findings suggest that nontraditional men's gender role attitudes may be rather unstable and susceptible to momentary influences such as those found in advertising. Full Text: COPYRIGHT 1997 Plenum Publishing Corporation In the average American household, the television is turned "on" for almost seven hours each day, and the typical adult or child watches two to three hours of television per day. It is estimated that the average child sees 360,000 advertisements by the age of eighteen (Harris, 1989). Due to this extensive exposure to mass media depictions, the media's influence on gender role attitudes has become an area of......

...Preferences I like my sense of humor, my friendliness, my dedication toward things and imagination. I like my ability to help others and give worthy advice. I hate I have ever hurt people when I never meant to, being dishonest at times and mistakes I have made in the past. I hate manipulating people and those who are not straight forward. I will be discussing the personality trait of being straight forward. This is a trait that I believe I possess and something I like very much. The subfield that this like fits in is personality psychology. Personality psychology puts together the pieces of the person--perceptions, thoughts, motives emotions, relationships--into one unified picture of the whole person. The three major kinds of puzzle pieces, thinking, feelings, and behavior are what personality psychologists are trying to explain, and we do this by referring to consistent patterns of thoughts and feelings that give rise to behaviors. But the relations between thinking, feelings, and behavior are not always as straight forward. People can show similar behaviors for many different reasons. Also we are not always perfectly consistent in our personalities. And the inconsistencies among our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are the puzzling part of the personality puzzle. Engaging the personality trait of being straight forward affects my state of consciousness in a positive way. By being straight forward one can avoid many pitfalls of negative personality traits, such as,......

Predicting Preferences

...Predicting Preferences Prediction involves making a statement concerning the likely value of an event or action uncertain or unknown at the time of the statement. Since the theory of probability, (inaugurated by the French mathematicians Blaise Pascal and Pierre Fermat in 1654), was developed to quantify uncertain events in terms of their likelihood of occurrence, formal prediction is now viewed as a mathematical topic involving probabilistic modeling. Indeed, the mathematician Karl Pearson said in 1907 that the fundamental problem in statistics is prediction. Prediction, however, is usually not an end goal itself, but rather means to put probabilistic bounds on the relative frequency or likelihood of occurrence of future uncertain events so that strategies or actions can be taken incorporating these predictions. Risk management needs predictive analysis, as does economic regulation, engineering control, and marketing effectiveness. This latter use of prediction often involves predicting an individual’s choice (or group’s choice) or preference over alterative options. Preference can be conceptualized as an individual’s (or group’s) attitude concerning a set of objects, and is usually formulated within a choice making context (i.e., X is preferred to Y if one would choose X over Y). In this way choice and preference are linked, and predicting preferences is akin to predicting choices. An auxiliary question is to formulate models that explain “why” or “how” the......
