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: 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!!!!

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 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.

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...

Slavery

Hezekiah Maina (Thome) ·
INQUIRY QUESTION; How did slave trade begin? Definition An enslaved person is someone who has his/her freedom taken away and is forced to work for a master or owner. Slavery is as old as human civilization. Until modern times, it was accepted by everyone as a fact of life. Even thinkers in ancient Greece, who first set out the ideas of democracy and freedom believed a free life for some was only possible through the enslavement of others. The earliest civilization whether in the middle east,...

Why do humans have different personalities?

Hi there. For my inquiry question, I was thinking: Why do humans have different personalities? I was wondering why because I myself am quite timid and calm, but my some of my friends are extremely talkative and energetic, and I wonder how we could have turned out so differently. However, to narrow my inquiry question down slightly, I was wondering what kind of personalities I should research: Shy vs. Outgoing? Optimistic vs. Pessimistic? Or something else? Let me know what you think.

Hi there...according to my understanding is that ones personality can be built up according to his/her birth You've probably heard of this concept before. First born children are often described as "bossy" or "responsible," while last-born children are sometimes described as "irresponsible" and "impulsive."....look up for your research Try out this link hope it will help you on your project; https://www.verywell.com/facts...-personality-2795436

I think shy vs outgoing will be the best as also some of the students in my school tend to be so shy such that even answering a quiz a teacher asks is impossible. Also we do have the talkative ones and they really help us around coz you just ask for something or someone and they will try their best to show you they do have the answer wish you luck in your project.

Hi there! This is a great question! Being a person who, like you, is pretty shy and generally quiet, I think that doing a question on outgoing people vs introverted people is a good way to go. I personally think that those traits are the ones that truly determine a person's life; their upbringing, their school life, their professional career, etc., and therefore I think that you'll find some really interesting points to cover.

Re: Why do humans have different personalities?

I really like your choice of topic. You could also mention how genetics has something to do with someone's personality. And you could state the causes to certain personality traits. For example, peer pressure and bullying. If, as a child, you were bullied severely, then you may be scarred forever and be shy or questioning of everyone and everything. Good luck on your project!

I believe there may be two main factors to consider, how they were born and how they were raised. If you grow up in a certain community you are more likely to follow that community's morals or values. Even in smaller circles, like families, you can often find a parent's behavior in their child. DNA is another thing to think about. I've heard that some personality traits may be able to travel in DNA. I don't know much about that though. Links Between DNA and personality ↓ ...

Re: Why do humans have different personalities?

Hi there: Extrovert and Introvert are two the most misinterpreted and misunderstood words in the English language. I would seriously recommend looking up the research of Meyers and Briggs regarding these two terms. Most people believe that it is about shyness or not. In fact, extroverts gain their "energy" from other people whereas Introverts "re-energize" in quiet settings. Social scientists who are proponents of the Meyers Briggs personality theory suggest that introverts can mask as...

Hi, everyone! I am sorry for delaying, my posts in a while.My inquiry question is "How can the colour of the skin affect the rate of heat loss or gain in the body?"

If this is so,...

Re: SKIN COMPLEXION

Hi, I suggest you look into why the color of someone's skin would affect heat loss in the way you described. Why does color have on heat gain? Why would a person with dark skin lose heat faster than someone with light skin in cold surroundings? What effect does someone's rate of heat gain have on their heat loss?

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...

Hi everyone, In my last round of research, I looked into the exact definitions of an extrovert and an introvert. This round, I am researching the science behind an extrovert's brain and an introvert's brain - what is different about them.

Hi Jessica, Happy to say I learned a lot reading your research! However, I believe many people including myself do not specifically categorize myself as an introvert or extrovert.

Again, super informative research and I look forward for the rest to come!

How do dogs interpret our language? Research Round #2

So today,I researched about how do dogs decide who is their master? Obviously most dogs love people but why do they listen, and show affection more to one person rather then everyone, so why? Their "master' is usually the person the dog is always happiest to see and listens to the most.

It may be more difficult for the dog the choose a...

Hello Rhea, Your topic interests me because I love animals and I like how detailed and informative your research is.

"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?"

Hey Jessica, The minute I saw your post I just had to read it. I have also been fascinated by the human mind and how we are capable having a gamut of personalities.I am an extrovert myself, so could this trait be genetic? Or are extroverts and introverts created by their environment. So in other words are we extroverts or introverts by nature or nurture? Good luck and I am looking forward to hearing from you.
