Hi everyone. I'm studying for AQA Psychology B. One of my suggested questions for revision asks me to state two differences between the behavioural and psychodynamic approaches to acquisition of gender identity, referring to theories/studies in my answer. It's a five-mark question.

I'm aware of the main ideas - Freud's psychosexual stages / gender identity in the phallic stage / gender identity arising as a result of earlier experiences which are buried in the subconscious, versus the behaviourist's view that gender identity is learned and shaped by reinforcement. I can also find studies and theories to go with these.

What's stumping me is the 'two differences' - all I can think of is that behaviourists believe that gender identity is learned, whereas the psychodynamic approach says that it's due to early experiences. I can't think of a second! Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance.

Behaviourist is scientific while psychodynamic is unfalsifiable
