Question Answer
Give the three pieces of alternative evidence for Buss Cellerino Waynforth and Dunbar Cunningham et al
What did Cunningham et al do? Hispanic students, native Asians and white Americans rated the attractiveness of Hispanic, black, white and Asian females
What did Cunningham et al find? close agreement across cultural groups when rating physical attractiveness. mean correlation of +0.93
How does Cunningham et al develop Buss? supports- men look for physical attractiveness in women across different cultures therefore increasing reliability. improves pop.v as different set of p's were used as well as time validity
Cellerino baby features such as small nose, big forehead rosy cheeks are said to be attractive. in 2003 C stated these were good indicators of high levels of oestrogen therefore high fertility
Cellerino improves Buss supports- suggests there is an evolutionary aspect in what we look for in a mate. increases time v as what we look for in a mate has not changed since 1989.
Cellerino, contradictory However, research shows rise in contraception suggesting women don't have sex purely to have a baby and therefore contradicting the evolutionary explanation.
Waynforth and Dunbar- what did they do and find? performed content analysis on 900 ads from four different newspapers in the US. found more men looked for youth and physical attractiveness than women
what else did Waynforth and Dunbar find women were more likely to describe themselves using physically attractive words whereas men were more likely to describe themselves with words relating to economic status.
how does Waynforth and Dunbar improve Buss supports as shows both men and women look for characteristics in partners based on the evolutionary urge. improves pop.v-diff set of p's although decreases as only done on Americans. improves time v
