Re: The Ideal Person - According to You

I too found the gap between the top three traits and the rest interesting. As to its origins, whether it be societal consensus or innate desire, I speculate it could be a mix of both. I found it interesting that you should add that, as pop culture, media, and our culture impacts every aspect of our being, not excluding relationships. Also, I wonder if the ideal romantic partner differs between sexes; that is, are different traits favored more/less than others by each gender? Just a thought.

Interesting point. Maybe I'll redo this post with the two different sexes. Thanks!

these results are really interesting! i find it really strange that respecting my family was so low. i also think that requirements for a significant other would really vary between the genders. i wonder, what if someone had a high percentage of the traits you looked for in a partner but that person was missing one key trait, such as honesty or funny. would you still be interested in being in a relationship with them?

Wow this is such a cool idea! I found it interesting that the top 5 traits were all to do with personality and not as much with appearance. I would be interested to know how many of the people who took the survey were male and how many were female to see if there is any difference in what a male looks for in a romantic relationship as opposed to a female.

I find it interesting that honest was the most desired trait, yet people often get upset with really honest observations on them. I wonder if that is actually a desired trait or if it's a trait that people want to desire. From what I've observed in people, so many would prefer to be unknowingly lied to or have the information withheld from them rather than told the truth. Also, is honesty a hard, concrete thing that means being honest with everything from serious situations to the typical...

Re: Experimental Music

I love that idea Jacob! I'm really excited to see what you do with that. Just some clarification - do you mean that you're looking into if it is worth it to create a work of art connected to commercial uses? Or are you looking into whether people care about it with the same intensity as a commercially connected work of art? I like your idea, but the question seems vague... Good luck!!!!

Re: Experimental Music

Interesting Idea! Musicians (most artists really) these days often worry more about what they will get out of the song than the song itself, do you think this makes the song less enjoyable or more enjoyable? Why? I look forward to your project and what you find out .

Re: How do dogs interpret our language? Research Round #2

Hello Rhea, Your topic interests me because I love animals and I like how detailed and informative your research is. I do have a thought that could be helpful to answer some of your inquiry question though. In my opinion dogs can't fully understand our language using just their ears. So I thought about how deaf people interrupt what we say and I remembered they use sign language which is like hand gestures for dogs. I think looking into "how dogs use their other senses to listen to their...

Re: How do dogs interpret our language? Research Round #2

"Do dogs have enemies?" I love this question! Attaching a usually human associated term to non-human things always interests me. This can lead to a whole bunch of questions, such as "What are enemies, really?" and "Why is the term enemy attached almost exclusively to humans?" While this is unrelated to your project, I just wanted to show you how inspiring your post was! Good luck, and I'm excited to keep updated with your research.

Hi Rhea! Another thing you could add on why dogs show specific interest to their owners/masters is the major factor of trust. A dog feels comfortable with humans after a while, when you've shown them that you care and that you love them and do not mean to harm them . This tells dogs, 'SAFE TO APPROACH!' And they will remember your smell as the person they can go to and lick your fingers. Hope this helps.

Hey Jessica, Amazing research! For someone like me who does not understand genetics this was extremely clear and informative. Looking at your past research I see you focused a lot on parenting and how that can play a role in weather someone is an introvert or extrovert. I was wondering if you had looked at it the other way around. How being a n introvert v. an extrovert effects their own parenting style.

Hey Jessica! I have to say, I really enjoyed reading this round of research. It was extremely informative and clear; I learned so much from this post!

Hey Jessica, This is some really good research you have, and interesting to read. I do agree with you, as your research supports, nurture and nature both play a key role in the development of ones personality. And I truly believe that overtime your personality can change quite a bit. It all depends on what positions you are put in that usually force a change in how you react. Great research!

Re: Research round 2 - Why are some people extroverts and others introverts?

Your research is very interesting. While some of the stereotypes do seem incorrect, there are others like "the firstborns are more responsible" which seem accurate to me as I am the firstborn. But I simply can not wait to read more of your work. Do you think environment plays a role in creating introverted and extroverted people? Anyway good luck with your research.

Re: Research round 2 - Why are some people extroverts and others introverts?

Hey Jessica! I really liked how you tied in the common stereotypes of being the youngest, eldest or middle child to being an introvert or an extrovert. I myself can see a relationship between the two especially when they both often share common traits with each other. I was just wondering if you have ever tried checking out the relationships between being a social introvert or a social extrovert? I really look forward to your next post! Good Luck!

Re: Research round 2 - Why are some people extroverts and others introverts?

Hi Jessica, I really loved your post! Extrovert and introvert are two of the most misunderstood words in the English language. They are a part of our personality but do not solely conduct our actions. After reading your research, I agree that certain stereotypes about children that are based on their birth order are usually true although there are always exceptions. I found a website that describes how different parenting styles affect children.

Re: How does bulling affect someone through their lifetime.

Hi Allan, I agree with you that most people that are bullied feel sad and start feeling inferior in society. However, there are some people that get past that stage and start getting stronger. They stop listening or they stop fighting back resulting in them feeling more powerful once the bullying stops. While this is a very small percent of the people that are bullied, it still shows that bullying can have a positive effect on the lives of some people. Here are some links that talk more...

And that we should not refer to the person being bullied as the victim, the person bullying as the bully and the person just watching it unravel as the bystander. I learned that referring to them is such a way is labeling them and making it hard for them to change. It also s very...

Re: How does bulling affect someone through their lifetime.

Hi, Allan! You have a great perspective on this matter!

However at the same time, I also became a stronger person as a result; I was able to take things lightly, become emotionally stronger and learn to ignore and forget things that displeased me, which eventually brought an end to my bullying.

Re: SKIN COMPLEXION

Hey Agnes, I find your question to be quite interesting because it could relate to evolution and why there are varied skin tones in the world. For example, an African would have darker skin than a Canadian due to more exposure to the sun so perhaps it would be easier for them to absorb the light if their skin was darker. Just like if you were to wear a black coat in the sun, chances are you would be hotter than if you were to wear a white coat. But then again everyone has the same core body...

Hey Jessica, You do bring up some good points with these questions, and I do truly believe that your personality plays a key role in politics. When comparing extroverted leaders with introverted ones, would it be possible to have a leader with both extroverted and introverted personality traits? If so would that leader be more appealing to the diverse voters, like the US? Just some more questions to think about, but I really like these two topics together!

Hey Jessica, Yasmin linked a post to a website that focuses on the MBTI, which I think is an excellent point to start off from. The MBTI considers extraversion and introversion as means of thinking, data processing, and energy usage. It's very cool, since in the theory, these two concepts aren't only about social behaviour. I'd suggest learning about archetypical MBTI (based on Carl Jung's theory of cognitive functions). Cognitive functions are super neat, and they provide a means of...

Hi Nazaha, I found your research to be very interesting. After reading what you said about Intuition vs Sensation, I think I am a person who prefers sensation.
