There are a assortment amount of questions that i need completed topics arrange from psychology and anthropology only. The answers should be brief and to the point. SOME ARE MOVIES JUST TRY ANSWERING THEM THE BEST YOU CAN IF YOU THE WRITER CANT FIND THE MOVIES. Come up with a simple hypothesis that you can test by simply observing people, animals, television, etc. Please note that you are not allowed to interact with anyone during this exercise. This needs to be completely observational. State your hypothesis, including what 2 variables youâ ll be observing (e.g. if I were to study gender and altruism, those would be my 2 variables, and I might hypothesize that men would hold the door open for someone else more than women). Note: no one can use this exact example for your DQ. Describe how youâ ll measure each variable (e.g. how will you know to categorize a person as a man/woman?). This would be similar to using a codebook (but much more simple). Make your observations (about 2030 minutes observing should suffice). Include a record of your observations. Come up with some conclusion based on your observations. PART 2: Choose 2 different inferential tests Come up with a research study that would utilize each of those inferential tests (e.g. testing the difference in IQ scores between men and women) and identify which test should be used. PART3: For the 2 examples identify which inferential statistic you should use to analyze the data from the study.Explain why you chose that statistic. 1.Studying the effect of antidepressant medication on OCD symptoms. The researcher has 50 people with OCD, randomly assigns them into 2 groups. One group get the antidepressant medication and the other receives a placebo. After, they measures OCD symptoms on a numeric (continuous) scale. 2.Looking at the relationship between selfesteem and body image. The researcher gives a survey to 300 people. The survey includes the Rosenberg SelfEsteem Scale, which measures selfesteem on a numerical continuous scale, and a body image questionnaire that measures body image on a numerical continuous scale. PART 4: Ongka, a Big Man of the Kawelka tribe in Papua New Guinea, has decided that he will arrange a moka to pay back a neighboring tribe that hosted a moka nearly 10 years ago. That tribe gave the Kawelka 400 pigs; Ongka wants to repay them with 600. A key component to Kawelka culture, the moka ceremony finds those seeking to gain influence attempting to do so not by acquiring valuable objects, but by giving them away. In fact, ‘moka’ means ‘interest,’ the amount of pigs that is given above the amount originally distributed. The Kawelka follow a horticultural subsistence strategy, raising pigs, yams and other vegetables and living in sedentary small villages and hamlets. The only way to accumulate much food surplus is to invest extra yams into pigs, turning carbohydrates into protein. Answer the following questions in paragraph form. Your answers are due by the end of Week 5. 1. What motivates someone like Ongka to work so hard? How does Ongka â bankâ his pigs? In what ways does moka benefit Ongkaâ s tribe as a whole? 2. How have Western consumer items infiltrated the moka tradition? 3. Explain the role of â Big Manâ as discussed in your text in relation to social organization. What social power does a Big Man possess? What personal talents/gifts, apart from throwing a big moka, would help to elevate a Big Manâ s status? How does this play out in Ongkaâ s case? 4. Compare the moka of Papua New Guinea to the potlatch of Northwest Coast Native Americans. How are they similar? How are they different? In what ways is give giving aggressive behavior in these two cultures? 5. What role do accusations of witchcraft play in leveling the playing field as far as any one group gaining too much status? PART5: The Mursi tribe resides in the basin of the Omo River, in the east African state of Ethiopia. Mursi women are known for placing large plates in their lower lips and wearing enormous, richly decorated earrings, which has become a subject of tourist attraction in recent years. Each year, hundreds of Western tourists come to see the unusually adorned natives; posing for cameratoting visitors has become the main source of income for the Mursi. After you watch the film, answer the following questions in paragraph form. 1. How is tourism a cultural product? In other words, what beliefs do you think provide motivation for tourism and for particular touristic experiences? 2. What do the tourists think about their hosts? Would you say that the tourists make an attempt to understand the traditions of the Mursi that lead to this sort of body modification? Why or why not? 3. What do the Mursi women think about the tourists? 4. Can you describe any of the cultural impacts of tourism? What happens when: a) the traditions of the Mursi women are made a tourist commodity (i.e. charges are made per photo taken?); b) competition for earnings affects the way in which the women decorate themselves; c) do you think that what the tourists are recording is an â authenticâ representation of culture such as an anthropologist would seek to witness/record? Why or why not? PART 6: 1. What does Tannen mean by conversational style? 2. What is the important style differnce in the way men and women ask for directions according to Tannen? 3.What is Tannen’s hypothesis about why males avoid asking other people for directions? men do not want to humiliate themselves and they don’t want to admit that they don’t know where they are 4.In Tannen’s perspective, what conclusions do men and women draw about each other when they display typically different approaches to asking for directions? 1.What is magic and why do people practice it according to Gmelch? 2.What parts of baseball are most likely to lead to magical practice? Why? 3how are Malinowskis and Skinners therories of magic alike and different? 4.Where in the USA is magic practiced? 1. How is tourism a cultural product? In other words, what beliefs do you think provide motivation for tourism and for particular touristic experiences? 2. What do the
