Proposal - Amitai Meyerowitz Literature review (1) MHC (Major Histocompatibility Complex) are a group of genes essential for the immune system. Unique body smells are heavily influenced by MHC and according to a study by Weekend et al (1), in which males wore a T-shirt for two consecutive nights without adding any artificial scents then had females smell the shirts and classify the odour as attractive or unattractive. Females were more attracted to the scent of males with dissimilar MHCs. MHC is expressed dominantly; a more diverse set of MHC genes leads to a stronger immune system. It has been found from this experiment that women prefer male partners with differing MHC genes from themselves.
Psychologists believe that instead of trying to answer the question, we need to understand the basic cogintive process underlying intelligence. We can divide the theorists who study intelligence in two different
The tender and cautions mentality of women and the bold and rugged personality of men blend together and keep us all intact. “General Review of the Sex Situation” was an eye opening read that gave readers a chance to step back and look at the world from a different perspective. By closely examining the flaws and insecurities that both sexes share (and some try to fix or hide) allow readers to see that no one is perfect along with it makes them compatible. I believe this poem is very in tune with what is going on and is also said in society and makes a great read for
Furthermore, the background vs foreground background flowers evokes a sense of purity, innocence and grace emphasising how women were expected to display conservative and high standards of morality. For example, a guide written in 1955 called ‘The good wife's guide.’ The guide exhibits the idea of women being financially dependent on men due to their employment and constructed gender norms such as
Paul can no longer suppress the trauma he faced on the front. The experiences have profoundly affected him in a way that he cannot verbalize the hardships he has endured (LitCharts). Paul was estranged to his own life, not recognizing people, not being able to do things as he use to, and no longer being able to fit his old clothes. “I know them all still, I remember arranging them in order. I implore them with my eyes: Speak to me –take me up –take me, Life of my Youth…A terrible feeling of foreignness suddenly rises up in me, I cannot find my way back” (Remarque, 272).
However, Gardner proposed that numerical expressions of human intelligence does not accurately represent people’s abilities. Another significance difference includes the different perspectives on whether intelligence is nature or nurture. Proponents of general intelligence conceive intelligence as an innate trait. In contrast, MI theory perceive of intelligence as a combination of inborn potentials and skills that can be cultivated in various manners through experiences (Davis et al., 2011). In order words, Spearman considers intelligence to be natural while Gardner views that intelligence can be
Having blemishes on their face are considered unattractive and that is why, foundation is used to hide all those imperfections. Silverio (2010) stated that being attractive is focus point of women as they are presented with the ideas that they will meet someone when they grow up, fall in love , get married and all those thing will only be possible if someone s attracted to them. In order to be seen and to found a partner, women need to be find attractive. According to Jackson (1992) women being competitive with one another is no longer a surprise in today’s society. The interesting part of this is that men tend to be competitive more based on ability and intellect while women are competiting for facial attractiveness and appearance.
It played into the Victorian archetype of the ideal woman, the “Angel in the House.” Women were expected to embody the characteristics of the Angel by being beautiful, submissive to their husbands, and morally pure. Wearing a corset was equivalent to being moral, such that not wearing one would indicate that the woman had “loose morals”. The stiffness caused by tight-lacing of corsets hindered free movement. This forced form exaggerated the physical difference between men and women, where the “weakness produced by corsets” made men seem strong in comparison, further “enhancing female difference”. Evidence suggests that corsets were meant to appeal to males.
War and industrialization devalued the individual. The tempo of change was bewildering. in Modernist literature, the individual is of more interest than the society. Modernist writers got rid of old form. Poets wrote in free verse and deserted traditional rhyme schemes.
The Disintegration of Yugoslavia Introduction As one of the most misrepresented series of major events in history, the disintegration of the Yugoslav state is an intricate event to follow due to the sheer number of parties involved and the consequent “systematically distorted” historical and journalistic narratives surrounding the subject. Still, however, this seems counter-intuitive, as Yugoslavia was always deemed to be an artificial state and its dissolution had seemed, at times, inevitable. Despite this, several characteristics made its dissolution quite distinct and complicated. For example, prior to conflict, Yugoslavia had survived a respectable 73 years, so its disintegration holds an intriguing element of suddenness. Additionally,
