    Does anyone else use Eagly and Wood (Biosocial) as the main bulk of an essay on cultural influences on gender role? I am so screwed with this Q I literally have no idea how to answer it and what to use as AO1 and AO2...

    I hate that marking is so inconsistent between examiners, it's not fair. It's a gamble whether we get one who likes our essay style.. Last year someone in my class asked for a remark and their grade went up from an E to a B!! They make us learn about inter-rater reliability but don't practice what they preach! :bawling: :unimpressed:

    Guys can you help me with this evaluation point for Group Displays please because I don't understand it?

    "WAR IS NOT 'IN THEGENES'
    War emerged when early humans shifted from a nomadic existence to a moresettled one where they were tied to agriculture or fishing sites, giving themsomething to defend. It appears, therefore, that warfare emerged as a rationalresponse to a changing lifestyle. Aggressive displays, therefore, are notlikely to be a product of evolution, but a response to environment changes suchas a rising population level and dwindling food supplies (LeBlanc &Register)."

    I think this is meant to be against the idea of evolution, right? But isn't the whole point of evolution adapting to your environment? so I don't understand how to use it (I may just leave it out but I don't really have any points against group displays right now other than a couple IDAs)

    The point it's making is that war is too recent a thing to have affected human evolution. BUT you could argue that it is in human nature to engage in fights, and even before the existence of warfare this was important for social status and other factors related to reproductive success. Hope that helps.

    Are you talking about the biosocial essay or the one on cultural influences on romantic relationships? There is no 'cultural influences on gender roles'

    If you can remember the basic theories, then try just to remember one or two detailed studies for evaluation, not bucketloads, with this you can tons of methodological issues or IDA points, instead of going over loads of studies. You still have time.. Don't panic.

    The same questions don't tend to show up two years in a row but it may not be the same for the latter, but still, its unlikely considering there are questions that haven't come up in a long time.
