Question and answer
What are some theories that may determine sexual orientation
Sexual orientation describes a pattern of emotional, romantic, or sexual attraction to men, women, both genders, neither gender, or another gender. [ According to the American Psychological Association, sexual orientation is enduring[1] and also refers to a person's sense of "personal and social identity based on those attractions, behaviors expressing them, and membership in a community of
others who share them."[2] The consensus among most contemporary scholars in the field is that one's sexual orientation is not a choice.[3][4][5] No simple, single cause for sexual orientation has been conclusively demonstrated, but research suggests that it is by a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences,[6] with biological factors involving a complex interplay of genetic factors and the early uterine environment. ]

User: 2) __________ conditioning is a type of learning in which a neutral stimulus comes to elicit a response, after being paired with a stimulus that naturally brings about that response.

Weegy: The answer is Classical. [ Classical conditioning is a basic form of learning whereby a neutral stimulus is paired with another stimulus that naturally elicits a certain response; the neutral stimulus comes to elicit the same response as the stimulus that automatically elicits the response. There are two competing theories of how classical conditioning works. The first, stimulus-response theory, suggests that an association to the unconditioned stimulus is made with the conditioned stimulus within the brain, but without involving conscious thought. The second theory stimulus-stimulus theory involves cognitive activity, in which the conditioned stimulus is associated to the concept of the unconditioned stimulus, a subtle but important distinction. In human psychology, implications for therapies and treatments using classical conditioning differ from operant conditioning. ]

User: 13) Descriptive research is an approach designed to systematically investigate a person, group, or patterns of behavior. Its methods include A. archival research B. naturalistic observation C. survey research D. case studies E. All of these

Weegy: E. all of the above Descriptive research is also called Statistical Research. The main goal of this type of research is to describe the data and characteristics about what is being studied. [ [ [ The idea behind this type of research is to study frequencies, averages, and other statistical calculations. Although this research is highly accurate, it does not gather the causes behind a situation. Descriptive research is mainly done when a researcher wants to gain a better understanding of a topic for example, a frozen ready meals company learns that there is a growing demand for fresh ready meals but doesnt know much about the area of fresh food and so has to carry out research in order to gain a better understanding. It is quantitative and uses surveys and panels and also the use of probability sampling. Descriptive research is the exploration of the existing certain phenomena. The details of the facts wont be known. The existing phenomenas facts are not known to the persons. ] ] ]
