Question Answer
What are the three contextual studies of Buss Trivers pred- women more picky look for cues based on resources Williams pred- men look for younger, more fertile women Daly et al pred- paternal probability, chastity
Describe Trivers in 1972 stated women more picky, carry (generally one) child for 9 months so want it to be successful reproduction. Look for men who can supply resources e.g. food, protection and territory.
Men are not as picky as women because.. They can impregnate as many women as they like
Williams 1975 prediction men look for cues of youth and physical attractiveness as fertility peak is 18-21 years old, therefore more likely to go for younger women to ensure reproductive success
youth and physical attractiveness are good indicators of.. fertility
Daly et al in 1982 women 100% child is theirs whereas men are not unless she is a virgin. Do not want to be saving resources for other mans child.
Daly et al stated women may also be interested in chastity in men.. because she does not want the man to have impregnated other people meaning the resources will have to be shared.
Buss' aims to investigate if evolutionary explanations for sex differences in human mate preferences are found in cultures with varying religious beliefs and political indicators etc.
