how does social cognition both positively and negatively affect one’s attitudes and behaviors
Weegy: Important factors that influence the impact of emotion appeals include self efficacy, attitude accessibility, issue involvement, and message/source features. [ Self efficacy is a perception of one’s own human agency, in other words, it is the perception of our own ability to deal with a situation. It is an important variable in emotion appeal messages because it dictates a person’s ability to deal with both the emotion and the situation. For example, if a person is not self-efficacious about their ability to impact the global environment, they are not likely to change their attitude or behavior about global warming.There is also considerable research on implicit attitudes, which are generally unacknowledged or outside of awareness, but have effects that are measurable through sophisticated methods using people's response times to stimuli. Implicit and explicit attitudes seem to affect people's behavior, though in different ways. They tend not to be strongly associated with each other, although in some cases they are. The relationship between them is poorly understood ] (More)

how can social cognition both positively and negatively affect one’s attitudes and behaviors
Weegy: Social cognition is the encoding, storage, retrieval, and processing, in the brain, of information relating to conspecifics, or members of the same species. * So it has positive and negative effects on one's attitude and behavior. [ Postively when you act accordingly to a certain situation. Negatively if your thinking leads to biases and wrong doings. [wink] ] (More)

What degree of the gender roles we play is determined by our biology?
Weegy: I kept refining my answer because the question, with its "culture component", really made me question some of the assumptions I had already made. [ The pieces of the puzzle wouldn't fit together. **** If it were purely a matter of biology then gender roles would be the same the whole world over, and they would have remained constant over time. We know this isn't the case at all. Not even evolutionary psychologists are willing to stick their necks out and say its all down to biology. Socialisation plays the larger role in humans, most certainly. We as a species have been changing too quickly for this to be down to evolution. Evolution takes millions of years; nothing measurable happens in just a few thousand years. Even certain highly intelligent animal species have something akin to "culture" that differs from one group to the next. For example, amazon parrots of the same species will "speak" a different dialect if they are geographically separated. Interlopers between the 2 groups "speak" both dialects. Habitat (environment) plays a huge role in the evolution of culture. Dialect is an expression of culture in humans, so the same must also apply to parrots. I'm certain of it, this *is* culture: "Vocal dialects have been documented in a range of bird species, including members of the Passeriformes. Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain how this patchwork variation in learned acoustic signals is maintained through time. While a number of empirical studies have examined genetic structure of vocal dialects, at present most have found limited evidence for a general concordance between genetic variation and vocal dialects. " So this means dialect is learned, even in birds. Bird language is innate,but the "finer points" such as dialect is, learned (there are other avian examples I won't bore you with). However, I think evolution "selects out" those who can't learn quickly enough for their genes to survive. So there is a genetic "push" also. ] (More)

How are independence, connectedness, social dominance, aggression, and sexuality influenced by gender roles?
Weegy: Sir/Madam, Gender roles can bedefined as the behaviors and attitudes expected of male and female members ofa society by that society. Gender roles vary. Different cultures impose different expectations upon themen and women who live in that culture. [ The United States has experienced tremendous upheaval and revising of its traditional gender roles in the last generation. These changes in gender roles affect the home, the workplace, and the school, and they affect all Americans to some degree. Gender Roles in the Workplace Over the past few decades, Americans have made great strides in accepting andadjusting to new definitions of gender roles. Part of the cause is the increased number of women in the workplace. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, white men (who once dominated the workplace) now account for about 45percent of all workers. White women and women of color make up 47 percent ofthe workplace. In 1995, 76 percent of women between the ages of 25 and 54 worked outside the home, up from 50 percent in 1970. With the increased presence of women in the workplace, old attitudes and behaviors have had to change. Men and women are more aware of sexual harassment than previously; whereas 20 years ago a woman who refused to have an affair with her boss may have had to quit, she now has other options. Companies are now experimenting with policies that are family-friendly, such as flex time, job sharing, and on-site child care- policies that benefit both men and women. In the nascently and experimentally egalitarian workplace, some men are concerned about being accused of sexual harassment, and they feel they must be extremely cautious in their everyday dealings with the women they work with; this caution may stifle creativity, some experts say. ] (More)
