Reva seemed to realize that she was able to do more than she thought that she was capable of, in accordance with acting and being famous. Conversely, Checkers seems to begin to lose faith in himself when he realizes that Reva was becoming a better actress, and more popular than him around the set and with the crew. Tenorio uses the fact that Reva was becoming enthralled with her surrounding to transform the way that she acted throughout the rest of the story. When Checkers seemed to notice the difference in her, he seemed to want to change as well and almost go back to things as they were before. The most influential line by Checkers is when he states, “On film…everything looks real” (Tenorio 12).
This will yield more positive feedbacks. If there are two people and one of them is good looking, great hair and proper clothes for a job, and the other person is totally opposite, of course we will say yes to the good looking person. Also a lot of research was made about how physical attraction affects our decision making. In one research, a group of people randomly dated each other and when we look at the feedbacks, people who dated each other said that ‘ They would know that they would meet one more time or not in a first seconds of our date.’
In many shots of the commercial, the women are wearing low cut blouses to show off their breasts. The movie also showcases a chubby teenage boy that intends to be part of the Baywatch lifeguard team. Putting an overweight contender can relate to some teens that are also overweight that wish to do something that overweight people usually do not do. This movie also appeals to adults that watched the original series. These adults will want to go see this new Baywatch instillation because it was part of their past and seeing it would be very nostalgic.
For example, in the journey for true love many of these women are willing to share a man - who they say they're falling in love with - among lots of other women (Clark 2011). The Bachelor goes on weekly dates with multiple ladies, which usually end in the pair making out. Then he tells each woman how special he thinks she is and how he could be falling for her. Notice how he doesn't say love. The women are okay with totally baring their souls to say they are in love only to get that lukewarm response (Clark 2011).
In accord with their greater desire for intimacy, women are generally more tolerant of close bodily proximity than men; in fact, men are more likely to perceive close proximity as a sign of aggressive or confrontational intent. Nevertheless, different cultures have different tolerances for bodily proximity, and these differences often exceed the difference between genders. Touching Since men are more likely than women to associate touching with sexual intentions, heterosexual men are less likely to use touch during conversation with other men. Women, on the other hand, are far less reticent about touching other women because they also use touching as an expression of friendship or sympathy. Here I referred as men and women, it mostly represent the actual gender.
It was found that the longer the relationship the more frequency of differences of opinions they had and used a negative conflict style. The study found that it is not the frequency of arguments but how they are resolved that made the relationship satisfying. I can use this article in my research paper to show that it is important to resolve conflict with a positive conflict style because it leads to a more satisfying relationship. Some problems with the study included the use of only college students and not a variety of couples such as those from different races and sexual orientation. Another problem is that maybe those in longer relationships argue more and use a negative conflict style because they feel more secure with the relationship, not because the relationship is
The two social psychology concepts I learned in this unit are self-fulfilling prophecy and groupthink. what I learned about self-fulfilling prophecy is that expectation about personality. stereotypes play apart like attractive people who are popular individuals that make them sociable. If I have a stereotype of being friendly, and many people are also having the positive behavior then I would become an even friendlier person. I learned that groupthink is a group of strong members.
He fell in love with her attraction, her “double D’s” is what he called it. As psychologist suggested, relationships are sometimes formed from physical attractiveness. Despite what people would like to think, physical attractiveness really matters. People are strongly influenced by their partner attractiveness. Attractiveness is also judged more positively on many different levels within the culture.
Intimacy, similarity and shared networks, however, are inversely proportional to uncertainty. When a stranger becomes more intimate, shares similar features and possesses the same networks and ties as the target person, uncertainty will definitely decrease. Since he or she knows more about the stranger, approaching him or her effectively will then be easier. Meanwhile, if there is still uncertainty between the two communicators, one may use reciprocity or reciprocal communication strategies to lessen the cognitive discomfort. Once uncertainty decreases, the stranger will then be liked by the person (Dainton & Zelley,
