Question Description

This week you have learned about the four primary perspectives in social psychology: sociocultural, evolutionary, social learning, and social cognitive, all of which can be used to describe social interactions; however, depending on the situation, some may be a better fit than others.

Let's consider an important issue in social psychology—aggression—specifically the gender differences in aggression. For this discussion we will assume that men are more aggressive than women.

  • Discuss how each perspective would explain this relationship.
  • Out of these four perspectives share which one you believe has the best explanatory power for explaining why there is a gender difference in aggression.
  • Discuss at least three assumptions that this perspective would make in explaining this relationship.
