Moghaddam suggests that the theory mainly applies to students in western cultures because they generally have short-term relationships due to their high mobility, short-term relationships do not involve long-term commitment so it makes sense to be concerned with give/take. This suggests the theory may not apply to long-term relationships and those within cultures concerned more with security than profit. Simpson provides research support for the CLA. He asked participants to rate members of the opposite sex in terms of attractiveness. He found that participants who were already in committed relationships tended to give lower scores than those not in a relationship.
The "looking-glass self" is a psychological concept that suggests people develop our sense of self based on the perceptions of those people interact. The selfie can may increase the self-perceive attractiveness and self-esteem which lead the people to consider themselves in higher social class and bring the inequity to the society. Due to lack of research from academic studies of effects on users’ emotional states, it is the intent of this study to provide a starting point for such a topic in hope of shedding light on a novel research area for Selfie that is considered more than just a self-image tools. The discussion in the literature provides knowledge of Selfie phenomenon, the qualitative methodology used to explore the research question, findings, and a discussion section that attempts to interpret and make value of the
For instances if a student lives near a particular university he or she would prefer to attend that particular university which is close to their home. For the living and daily travelling expenses is less, also there are many renting houses available near such tertiary institutes. Hence the living and daily travelling expense and the price of renting a house attributes towards making their university choices. Secondly decision making is also a contributing factor. For many students the decisions they make are originally not their decision.
He found that people were much more likely to relapse when they believed withdrawals were going to be negative. Those who were told to expect no negative withdrawals were less likely to relapse as they had a positive expectation. This provides evidence for the key role expectancy has in relapse. However Tate’s experiment can be criticised. The independent group design could have meant, by chance, the group who were told to expect no negative withdraws, were naturally more determined people, thus increasing their chance of giving up anyway.
The education that Community College provides is different from that of a four year university. While many people believe that University is by far better, "Community Colleges tend toward fewer students per class, which means more student/teacher interaction. This is good for students who like access to their instructors so they can ask questions and avoid getting lost"1. Fewer student to teacher ratio means more one on one time with student and teacher, therefor enhances a students learning. It also means more recognition per student and individual teaching.
Lastly, I will discuss Aristotle’s view of friendship and compare intimate friendships to what he calls “complete friendship”. Research finds that male students tended to report loving the same sex friends less than women did on a love and liking scale report in 1970. (Tognoli) Although the information met societal expectation, a poll-based data does not satisfy like experience-based data. In 1976, another research reported that all-male college groups were less intimate and open to each other compared to their women counterparts. The men shared less about their feelings or personal information compared to women.
They also perceive beautiful people as more self-assertive and dominant than less attractive people. This can be seen in myths and fairy tales as well as films throughout history. The 'goodies' are young and beautiful whereas the 'baddies' are ugly. Furthermore, others appear to respond more positively to physically attractive individuals with consequent positive outcomes. According to Quereshi and Kay, a physically attractive applicant is more likely than an unattractive applicant to be hired for a job that involves a significant amount of social interaction, hence the attribute of social competence associated with physically attractive individuals.
Also increasing number of people prefers cohabitation, that is living with a partner together but not marry, because it might help avoid conflicts. For 40% cohabitation is a good alternative to marriage, while for most people cohabitation is a kind of prelude which helps to test relationships and make them stronger. Main causes of an increase in family diversity are changing in attitudes that is how people now define the ideal family life, increased opportunities in going to University for everyone made people be more aimed in making their own career and be more independent; from 1967 contraception became more reliable and available for all women and sexual relationships became not only the way of social reproduction but also the expression of love.Weeks suggested that nowadays there is an increased choice in personal mortality, that is choosing different kinds of families is individual choice rather than influence of values and attitude in the society. Also family diversity has increased due to changes in expectations from marriage and as Fletcher said, now people place higher values on marriage. The Divorce act 1969 made it easier for people to divorce and they didn’t have to prove guilty of their partners.
The two-year and four-year lower tier schools are predominantly African American and Hispanic. The lower tier schools face issues of overcrowding, under-resourced and students are more likely to be working while going to school. These facts make graduating from one of these colleges more difficult and significantly less likely. The system is unequal in most areas. Many students pursing an advanced degree at lower-tier colleges or universities will have less life and career aspirations than their Caucasian and Asian counterparts.
Some people may think that a university provides a higher education than community college. Since many part-time professors work full time at the state university, we're getting the same education, just cheaper. Therefore, the education is mostly the same. Actually, it is easier to transfer to a 4 year than start as a freshman. According to the article “Something to Fall Back On: Community Colleges as a Safety Net” by Kalogrides; he states that “We find that the safety net function of community colleges is especially important for disadvantaged students who are significantly more likely to transfer down or drop out of higher education entirely without completing a Bachelor’s degree.” As what he said, there are many people may not get a university degree for many reasons, or just because they fail to meet accreditation standards.
