Some researchers have hypothesized that women are able to use their verbal abilities to recognize faces by verbalizing them. Research was performed to test this hypothesis by preventing the participants from being able to verbalize the faces of the people they were shown. The results showed that women still were able to recognize more faces than men were able to, despite not being able to use verbal processing. The results also showed that women were able to recognize the faces of other women more easily than the faces of males, whereas men tended to remember male and female faces equally well (Herlitz, 2008). Further studies on this showed evidence showed that women in fact devote more attention in remembering women’s faces than males faces.
Kramarae (1981:145), on the other hand, states that ‘men specialize in instrumental or task behaviours and women specialize in expressive or social activities’. Society’s sex-stereotyping of jobs influence girls’ behaviour and expectations, and encourage positive attitude towards language learning while society’s division of tasks and assumptions according to sex is transferred to boys and girls through formal and informal instruction. This alliance between society-education may explain boys’ and girls’ different concerns, attitudes and expectations. Girls’ communicative skills are enhanced if not maximised because of their expected patterns of interaction. Consequently, girls may develop a liking for languages.
They usually have normal or slightly lower than normal intelligence. They may need extra assistance in certain academic subjects. Hyperactivity and temper tantrums can also occur more frequently than expected during childhood. At the more severe end of the spectrum, affected people’s speech and language delays and disabilities may be more serious and they can be diagnosed with a specific speech or language disorder which may require therapy. Most males who have Jacobs Syndrome have a very good prognosis, as learning disabilities that are caused by this condition are mild and most people with this condition learn how to control their behavioural problems with age.
3). Furthermore, “in 2009 there were only marginally more female ‘computer programmers’ than in 1972 (20.3 percent now compared to 19.9 percent then),” however, “ after an initial increase in women’s share of the occupation to more than one-third of programmers in the late 1980s, their share has fallen consistently since 1989” (Hegewisch et al., 2010, p. 3). A sad conclusion of the report is that “occupational gender segregation for young women, aged 25 – 34 years, is now stronger than it was at the beginning of this millennium” (Hegewisch et al., 2010, p. 13). Blau, Brummund, and Yung-Hsu Liu (2013) confirmed these findings through their survey that showed trends in occupational segregation.
As they go through this stage young people will begin to solve problems more easily and have an appreciation of other people’s views and opinions. However as they are still inexperienced in life a young person may appear immature at times with regards to their ways of thinking and speech. During the Emotional Development stage, a young person will begin to spend less time with their parents and want to spend more time with their friends socialising instead. A young person may also feel conflicted at times, as they will want the affection from parents, however this is usually short lived as the young person will then also reject it when it is given.
However, in the early 1980s, researchers began physically testing male and female arousal in response to the literature and “although men and women often report differential interest in erotica, the objective evidence suggests that both are equally aroused” (Clark III, Hatfield). What is even more shocking, women actually rated the arousing effect of audio tapes higher than men
Talcott Parson (1955) connects differences in patterns of crime and deviance to the gender roles portrayed at home. While women perform the more passive role at home, men assume the breadwinner role this therefore gives little girls growing up better access to a role model while boys distance themselves from the feminine role models by engaging in aggression to prove their masculinity therefore socialisation is more difficult for boys than it is for
The U.S. Department of Education recently reported that even though more female high school graduates took advanced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) courses than male counterparts, their interests in STEM were significantly lower regardless of race/ethnicity according to a 2009 survey (U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics [NCES], 2015). Further, there are significantly less women who completed STEM degrees compared to men (Lee, Alston, & Kahn, 2015). In addition to the gender discrepancy, racial discrepancy also exists in STEM. Both discrepancies have been examined by researchers for the last decades; however, relatively less studies have examined the racial discrepancy in STEM. In contrast, many studies have examined how to promote gender parity in STEM fields.
This can lead to confusion and vulnerability of the teenager. For example, research shows that adolescents who did sexual intercourse at an early age will tend to place higher value to independence while a lower value to academic achievement. Early sexual intercourse usually happens when the teenagers have problem disorders such as smoking, delinquent behavior and abuse. They also tend to be more socially critical, more tolerance towards defiance and becoming less religious. Thirdly will be influences from family and peers.
Maturity is one the biggest differences in girls and boys when potty training. Girls mature faster than boys; which leads to faster progress in many things like potty training. Parents hear from other parents that their child was so hard to train and so
She shows one side of girls. Some girls do like girly things and they prefer to not get their hands dirty or tussle around with boys. Their all types of girls and while she has a well explained reasoning for breaking stereotypes, some stereotypes are not all that negative. Girls and guys are different.
Socialization is evident in the texts by Harry Gracey and Barbara Kingsolver. Both texts shed light on the basis of how the Western educational system operates their functions. Gracey’s text explains that from the prime age of four to five, most parents start their children’s education(s) in kindergarten. Gracey states kindergarten “is thought of as a year in which small children, five or six years old, are prepared socially and emotionally for the academic learning which will take place” (Larocque, 2015). A common misconception people make is believing kindergarten is a preparation year for children rather than forming the student role.
Chapter VII talks about Glenn Walters’s “Lifestyle Theory”. The lifestyle theory generally explains that criminal behavior is part of the patterns of human life and choice. Criminal behavior is all perceived through their morally, corrupted mind. Chapter X talks about Robert Agnew’s “Super Traits Theory or General Theory”. The super traits theory generally explains five life provinces that is possibly the cause for crime.
