Scientists examine: Why do men sometimes show their opponents signs of respect after a fight?

first_imgLinkedIn Share on Facebook Share Pinterest Emailcenter_img Share on Twitter PsyPost interviewed the study’s corresponding author, Nicole Barbaro. To learn more about the study, read her explanation of the research below:PsyPost: Why were you interested in this topic?Barbaro: There were two primary reasons we were interested in this topic. One reason being that no research had yet been conducted on post-fight respect, or post-fight reconciliation behavior, in humans. A bit a research had been done on reconciliatory behaviors following combative behavior in chimpanzees and other primates, but the vast majority of the human research on fighting and combative behavior has been focused on formidability assessments and the benefits of dominance within competitive contexts. The second reason being that we were interested in explaining a real-life phenomenon commonly seen in combat sports, such as mixed martial arts (e.g., UFC). It is incredibly common to see that two opponents — who had spent upwards of 25 minutes attempting to knock out the other — shake hands, hug, and praise one another at the conclusion of the fight. So, we were interested in whether there are reliable predictors of displaying what we call “post-fight respect “given certain attributes of the fight and the combatants. What should the average person take away from your study?Our research includes three studies (two self-report studies, and one behavioral study) to investigate whether features of the fight and combatants—fight outcome, use of “dirty” fight tactics, size asymmetries, fighter ranking, and presence of witnesses—predicted whether an individual’s anticipates receiving respect from their opponent and the likelihood that an individual would actually display respect to their opponent following a one-on-one fight. Across the three studies there are two major findings. One being that, on average, individuals expect that they should receive post-fight respect more often than they are willing to actually display post-fight respect. The second being that size asymmetries and use of “dirty” fight tactics appear to be the most reliable predictors of both receiving and displaying post-fight respect. The latter finding accords with much previous research on human combat, such that (1) men (and to a lesser degree, women) can very accurately assess the physical strength and general formidability of other men visually, and (2) cross-cultural research shows that there is general agreement on what type of fight tactics, or behaviors, are acceptable for one-on-one fights. Given the previous work in this area, our findings mesh well, and also contribute novel findings in an under-researched domain of psychology. Based on our findings, we suggest that displaying post-fight respect to an opponent reflects positive valuations of the opponent’s fighting performance—that is, if an opponent is much smaller than you (a fighting “handicap” of sorts) and fights a “clean” fight, then your display of respect is a way of praising their good fighting performance.Are there any major caveats? What questions still need to be addressed?Our research is, to our knowledge, the first attempt to understand the psychology underlying the phenomenon we call “post-fight respect” in humans. Replication and extension of our findings are important for a better and more comprehensive understanding of post-fight behavior in humans, more generally. There are several unanswered questions that still need to be addressed. For instance, the relationship between the two combatants may be important for displays of post-fight behavior–Are the combatants friends? Enemies? Strangers? Another potential predictor we are interested in looking into is whether the fight itself resolved the issue that lead to the escalation in the first place—for instance, we suspect that post-fight respect may potentially signal that the conflict between the combatants has been resolved.Is there anything else you would like to add?Humans—and in particular, men—have a long evolutionary history of fighting and combat. And a wealth of previous research supports this notion, including findings that the events leading to combat are quite predictable, that men have the capacity to evaluate the formidability of other men, and that there is cross-cultural agreement on acceptable fighting behaviors. Our study adds to this area or research and shows displays of post-fight respect may also be predictable given features of the fight and the combatants. Perhaps most exciting, are the future research opportunities that our findings may stimulate within this domain given the results of our research.Nicole Barbaro is currently a PhD student of Evolutionary Psychology at Oakland University. Her research focuses on romantic attachment dynamics and the predictors and consequences of aggressive behavior. More information about Nicole’s research can be found on her website (www.nicolebarbaro.com), or you can follow her research on Twitter @NicoleBarbaroThe study, “Post-Fight Respect Signals Valuations of Opponent’s Fighting Performance“, was also co-authored by Michael N. Pham, Justin K. Mogilski, Todd K. Shackelford, and Virgil Zeigler-Hill. It was published March 1, 2017. A new study provides some clues about when and why some men show signs of respect after a fight.Researchers from Oakland University said their findings indicate that humans may have evolved psychological mechanisms to signal evaluations of fighting performance. The study, published in the peer-reviewed Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, examined what factors could predict signals of respect, such as shaking hands with an opponent.The researchers used questionnaires and an in-lab fight simulation game to investigate when men expect to receive post-fight respect from an opponent and when they themselves display respect for their opponent. They found men expected to receive respect if they win the fight, fight a more formidable opponent, and fight fair. Likewise, individuals are willing to signal respect for their opponent when they fight a less formidable combatant and if their opponent does not fight “dirty.” On the other hand, the presence or absence of witnesses appeared to have no effect on post-fight respect.last_img read more

Golfnutter: Steven Bowditch – inspirational (part 2)

first_imgIn April 2006, following a poor run of form on the US PGA Tour and suffering from acute clinical depression, Australian golfer Steven Bowditch attempted to take his own life only to be saved by the timely intervention of his then girlfriend at his condo in Dallas, Texas.Following this close call with death he immediately sought medical attention for his condition and was prescribed antidepressants.  At first they didn’t work; “It went worse,” he said.  “Less sleep.  By then I was running on about an hour a night, if that.  We went on to strong sleeping tablets to take with it.  Then the thoughts, the bad thoughts of hurting myself again, they were coming very regularly.  Every day was getting worse.  I was starting to get my emotions back, but my emotions were all angry.”Bowditch tried to play once in May in Memphis, but couldn’t manage it and posted another DQ.  He finally returned full time at the end of July and made his first cut at the end of August in Reno.  He was playing with fellow Aussie Jason Day, whose caddie, Colin Swatton, was the golf professional at Bowditch’s home course of Kooralbyn part of the time Bowditch was a student there.“I remember walking down the last,” says Swatton, “and he’s right in the middle of the fairway.  All he’s got to do is wedge it on and two-putt and he makes the cut.  He walked down to the ball, and I said, ‘Come on, mate, let’s just finish this off.’  He says, ‘I can’t do it.  I can’t do it.’  That was the first glimpse I saw of it.  He was nearly crying when he knocked in the putt.” After sharing confidences with his old mate from Kooralbyn, Swatton recalls seeing an episode from the Golf Channel shortly after; “I was in Ohio, and they were doing that “Grey Goose 19th Hole” and one guy was saying, ‘Oh, Steve Bowditch has picked up a new sponsor, Dairy Queen, for DQ.’  I was thinking, gosh, you don’t even know the story,” says Swatton.  “He used to not be able to come out of the locker room.  He’d jump in the car, and he’d be gone.  They just didn’t realize.”  Cruel game golf!After his poor experience with the first medication, Bowditch was put on Prozac, which helped some, and then Zoloft, which helped a great deal.  A certain amount of trial and error is common since each of the medications affects the chemical composition of the brain in a slightly different way.  By June 2008, under the supervision of his doctor, he was taken off medication entirely but relapse is always a concern.  The people closest to him, including his mother and father, are understandably watchful.“Obviously, they’re just more concerned from the past,” Bowditch says.  “I know I would know, with things like not remembering shots.  There were times back then where I would sit on the next tee and I couldn’t remember hitting a golf shot.  My mind was just shut off.  I’d have to ask my caddie what happened.  Short-term memory loss is a symptom.”Bowditch has since become associated with an Australian group called beyondblue, a nationwide depression initiative.  He made a DVD for them, detailing his struggles.  While he has never been able to bring himself to watch it, others have.  He has received notes from people thanking him for saving their lives.Bit by bit, Bowditch started to get his life back to a point in 2009 where he actually fell back in love with life – off the course.  This was in no small measure due to his relationship with future wife, Amanda Yarussi, a producer for Fox Sports.  Then the wins started to come.  In November 2009, he won the Queensland PGA. The NSW PGA Championship followed in May 2010, the Web.com Tour’s Soboba Golf Classic in California, October 2010 and then, four years later following a good run of consistent performances, he hit the big time.His first PGA Tour win was the 2014 Valero Texas Open, which gave him his first and only Masters start that same year – he finished a credible 26th.  Then, just weeks ago, he won the AT&T Byron Nelson by four shots; at the very same location where he and wife Amanda married four years prior.Some redemption story this.  One hopes it will get even better.Golfnutterlast_img read more

India vs Australia 2nd ODI Preview: India look to continue their dominance over Aussies

first_imgAdvertisement wo619NBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs43s2u9zWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ed6( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 7kxWould you ever consider trying this?😱yb1oCan your students do this? 🌚bofz3Roller skating! Powered by Firework After registering an emphatic win in the first ODI at Hyderabad, India will look to continue the momentum when they take on Australia in the second ODI in Nagpur. Following the T20I series loss, the Virat Kohli led- team ticked all the boxes to thrash Australia by six wickets in the series opener on Saturday. The team chased down a moderate total of 237, thanks to the efforts of MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav both of who struck 50s and were involved in a mammoth 141-run fifth wicket stand.Advertisement The two teams are still looking to fix their squads for the ICC World Cup and Nagpur could witness a heavily rotated playing XI from both the sides.The second ODI is scheduled to be played in Nagpur on March 5.India could look to give KL Rahul a go at top of the order replacing Shikhar Dhawan who did not get runs in the first face-off. In the bowling department, Kuldeep Yadav is expected to retain his place in the XI, having snapped up two wickets for 46 in the first match. There could be a flip between Ravindra Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal for the second spinner’s spot.  The Indian team management may also look to give Rishabh Pant a chance and the flamboyant batsman could replace Ambati Rayadu at number 4. Other selections are straightforward.Advertisement In the opposite camp, Aaron  Finch, who had scores of 0 and 8 in the T20 series, continued his bad run in the first ODI, will be hoping to get some runs under his belt on Tuesday . Shaun Marsh, who has arguably been Australia’s most consistent ODI performer post the ball tampering scandal could walk in the XI in to replace Ashton Turner. Zampa’s show at Hyderabad would keep Nathan Lyon out. Australia could bring in Andrew Tye to support Zampa, ahead of Jason Behrendoff.Talking about the pitch, it is likely to be flat and might get slower as the game progresses while weather in Nagpur is likely to be clear during the match.Advertisement Teams (from):India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rishabh Pant, Siddarth Kaul, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja.Australia: Aaron Finch (captain), D’Arcy Short, Shaun Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Usman Khawaja, Alex Carey, Peter Handscomb, Ashton Turner, Adam Zampa, Jason Behrendorff, Jhye Richardson, Pat Cummins, Andrew Tye, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Nathan Lyon. Also read:ICC wants to have a say in the running of the IPL Advertisementlast_img read more
