Incomplete paper on Evo-Psych and Gender behaviors: Human Learning Curve vs Sex.

July 21, 2013

1.) Firstly we start with evolution:

– Evolution involves adaptation. Through the pressures of either [natural] or [artificial selection]* the process results in biological changes over time that favor mutations according to the environmental factors relevant.

– Those who fail to thrive in the environment, thrive less in the environment or even do [only slightly worse that another competing species] will eventually be outbred or extinct; and the dominating trait will survive.

This is, in part, how the pattern of evolution and natural selection works.

2.) Now we move on to[Evolution] applied to [Behavior]
Explained and theorized in [Evolutionary Psychology]

With Relevance to [Neural biology]: Different parts of our brain have adapted to serve differing functions.

>> The Evolution of our brains occurred, evidently (in by comparison to other species) from the center out, building upon already present functions.

– From the core being critical autonomic functions
– To the surface cortical functions of [long term memory] and [logical assembly]

3.) Emotions = Primitive nature.

— Emotions define our [likes] and [dislikes]: Completing our brains “reward-circuit” and conditions some extended variables of our behavior. Those relevant to [Socialization]
— The same system also reinforces critical biological behavioral functions such as [Mating] critical due to the fact [Reproduction is necessary for survival]

The value of emotions can be confirmed on both sides, in part. Whether

  • [Bad] because of rage/anger/jealousy.
  • [Good] because of joy, love, compassion.

3.) Emotional Predispositions

Emotional predispositions can and are often conditioned into people. We could also call this [Stereotyping] As our encounters with -Subjects- that meet certain criteria, will be written into our memory as Positive, Negative, or Neutral.

Stereotyping cannot be avoided!!

Stereotyping is part of our brains ability to make predictions in our environment. Another name for this function could be “Intuition” However, the ethical measure has to do with how strongly we react to these emotional predispositions.

Examples of

[Stereotyping], [Intuition] or

[Pattern recognition and memory encoding neurological functions]

  1. Walking into a busy street might get me killed.
  2. People carrying guns have probably shot one of them.

Behavioral Recognition: Non-Verbal:

  1. People who look -angry- are probably angry.
  2. People who look -happy- are probably happy.
  3. People who look -sad- are probably sad.

4.) Emotions: Pros and Cons.

Pro – Helps us to avoid danger and seek resources.

Con – Prevents us from detatching from preconception in order to test new ideas.

5.) Differences in Male and Female Neurology:

– Males have stronger spacial,
