    Can Communication Styles Predict Divorce?

    The results of a national research project found that the patterns spouses use to communicate when a conflict arises may have a bearing not only on the quality of their relationship, but on whether the couple ends up divorcing early in the marriage.

    Everyone assumes that aggressive conflict behaviors like yelling and insulting the other party can lead to divorce. However, Dr. Kira Birditt, a professor at the University of Michigan, wanted to see if less dramatic conflict behaviors (e.g., keeping quiet, leaving the argument) and even constructive behaviors (e.g., calm discussion, listening) might cause a marriage to end in divorce.So she, along with a team of researchers, conducted a study examining the conflict communication patterns in the marriages of over 500 African American and White heterosexual couples over a period of 16 years. They asked the wives and husbands to describe their conflict behaviors during disagreements at different times during the 16 years. From time to time, the couples filled out questionnaires (separately) and were also interviewed by the researchers separately and together. The researchers also gathered divorce statistics on the couples.They found that, indeed, conflict behaviors have important implications for divorce. As expected, husbands and wives reporting greater constructive conflict behaviors had lower divorce rates and those who used more destructive behaviors (e.g. shouting, insulting the other) had higher divorce rates.However, they also found a particularly toxic pattern that, while seemingly less destructive, actually has damaging effects on the longevity of the marriage.That is, when one spouse deals with conflict constructively (e.g. calmly discussing the situation, listening to their partner’s point of view, or trying hard to find out what their partner is feeling) and other spouse withdraw—the end result is higher divorce rates. This is somewhat similar to the demand-withdrawal pattern described in this chapter.It seems that if one spouse attempts to solve relationship problems with constructive behaviors, such as finding solutions, but the other spouse prefers to solve problems by leaving the situation, the spouse who uses constructive behaviors may perceive their partner’s withdrawal as a lack of investment in the relationship and ultimately also loses interest.Birditt and her team also found that conflict behaviors had similar effects on divorce for both Black and White couples, and that over time, wives were less likely to use destructive strategies or withdraw, whereas husbands’ conflict behaviors remained stable. They speculate that it may be that relationships are more important to wives, who may realize over time that destructive and withdrawal behaviors are not good for the marriage, so they tend to accommodate and reduce their use of these unproductive behaviors.

Do you think of yourself as a team player or more of an individual performer? The results of a recent study show that while employees acknowledge the value of teamwork in the workplace, they would rather go it alone.

  • Do you agree? Why or Why not?

  • Hate Teamwork? You’re Not AloneDo you think of yourself as a team player or more of an individual performer? The results of a recent study show that while employees acknowledge the value of teamwork in the workplace, they would rather go it alone. Do you agree? Why or why not?
    In two recent articles, business writer Chad Brooks describes the results of a survey and his interviews with business leaders, both attesting to the importance of teamwork skills in the workplace, as well as the aversion that most employees have toward it.Brooks reports that many business leaders insist that, when set up correctly, teamwork has great benefit. As it turns out, many employees agree. Brooks reports that a recent survey of more than 1,000 employees found that 95 percent of those surveyed (who had ever worked on a team) thought that teamwork serves a critical function in today’s workplace. More than 60 percent surveyed also agreed that collaboration and team building, conflict resolution, and team management are required skills for students looking to join today’s workforce.However, 85 percent of these same employees said that working on teams in the office is difficult and that they would rather work on their own than participate in team efforts. They gave many reasons for their dislike of teamwork; two of the most frequently mentioned were that teamwork goes against the cherished “in-it-for-one’s-self” mentality in the workplace, and a lack of clearly defined roles often contributes to team failures.Other frequently given reasons were that their workload was too heavy, not allowing for enough time to work on team projects, and much of the resistance to teamwork resulted from a lack of proper preparation and training in how to work effectively in teams.Finally, some of the employees’ dislike about working in teams seem to come from previous negative teamwork experiences and having been part of a dysfunctional team. These negative experiences included verbal confrontations among team members, arguments that turned physical, team members blaming each another for things that went wrong in the team, and working with team members who started rumors about one another.The results of the survey, as well as the interviews with business leaders, seem to suggest that to be successful in today’s workplace, acquiring good teamwork skills is a must—even though it might not be a favorite part of the job!

Sex Differences in Smell

Have you noticed a difference in sense of smell between the sexes? Why do you think women typically have a keener sense of smell?

Did you know that scientists often use all-female panels when they look for objective descriptions of food based on sensory perception, such as taste, smell, and appearance? They do so because on standard tests of smelling ability—including odor detection, discrimination, and identification—women consistently outscore men. One researcher has claimed that this difference is evident even in newborn babies.

Age also influences an individual’s sense of smell. A study that tested 3,282 participants found that, overall, one’s sense of smell was most acute between the ages of 19 and 35 and was the least acute when one is older than 55. However, in all of the three tests conducted, women out performed men. Other studies have shown that women also rate the sense of smell as being more important to them than do men.

Experiments that have examined men’s and women’s scent ability reveal that both sexes are able to recognize others from their body odor alone. In an experiment at Hebrew University, Jerusalem, childless women held an unrelated baby in their arms for an hour. When tested later to see if they could recognize the baby they had held by scent, most of them were successful. This study did not test men, so it isn’t clear if men possess similar smell recognition ability for unfamiliar others. However, other tests have determined that men and women both can recognize their own children or spouses by their scent. Typically in these studies, participants’ children or spouses wore a T-shirt for several days, and then the participants were asked to use scent to recognize the T-shirt belonging to their family memb

Using the attached IRP Research Question and Data Set Template 2018, add the following information into the document.

  1. Your research question for your IRP. ANOVA example: “Is there a statistically significant difference between these groups (identify the groups) based on this characteristic (identify the characteristic)? Simple Linear Regression (SLR) example: “Is this factor (identify the factor) a statistically significant predictor of a characteristic (identify the characteristic) based on this data sample?
  2. The statistical question that you hope to answer by analyzing the data set you picked.
    • ANOVA Example:
      • H0: ?1 = ?2 = … = ?n
      • HA: Not all means are equal (i.e. ?1 ? ?2 or ?2 ? ?3  …  ?1 ? ?n)
    • Simple Linear Regression Example:
      • H0: ?1 = 0
      • HA: ?1 ? 0
  3. The name, source, and a link to your data set. Also, include the number of records and attributes in the data set. You do not have to use all of the attributes or records in your analysis. 

Part 2

In the Independent Research Project (IRP), students conduct an analysis project using SAS primarily and Excel as needed to analyze real-world data. Note: You are required to do a ANOVA Analysis or a Regression Analysis submit them showing Pr or P values, F values, R-square, B values, Plots, etc. and discuss these values and what they mean – as needed for the type of analysis you are conducting (ANOVA or Regression). Homogeneity of Variance of residuals can be assumed so you can proceed with your required analysis. Use DAX 3 or DAX 4 qnd/or DAX 5 video and Instructions to help conduct your analysis. As in previous DAX exercises, you must also attach the Summary Descriptive Statistics Table along with the ANOVA Results Table or Regression Results Table. Example ANOVA or Regression Tables required:

  • In the first assignment (IRP Research Question and Data Set), you identified the data set you wanted to use, developed a research question, and identified a statistical question that could be answered analytically.
  • In this assignment, you will create and submit a business memo (template attached) that clearly communicates your analysis of the data set you identified in the previous assignment. When you submit this draft of your IRP, you will get feedback from your classmates and your instructor. You should use this feedback to improve your IRP.
  • In later assignments (IRP Memorandum, IRP Presentation, Presentation Questions Reply), you will submit the final version of your IRP, create and submit a PowerPoint presentation that summarizes your IRP, present your analysis via a recorded video presentation, and answer questions about your presentation. 

Part 3

This is the final version of your IRP.

SUMMARY:

In this Independent Research Project (IRP), students provide a business decision recommendation using SAS primarily and Excel as needed to obtain real-world data. The student will create and submit a business report that clearly communicates a recommendation based on their analysis of the data set that includes an analysis of different courses of action using weighted factors. The students will also create a PowerPoint presentation that summarizes their IRP and present their analysis live, via video-teleconference or as a recorded video presentation. The student will also answer questions about their presentation. Note: The IRP should involve either conducting an ANOVA or Regression Analysis using SAS and submitting the complete results including Tables, P value, Pr value, R-square, and graphics to prove you conducted the required SAS analysis. The IRP project should involve your research question findings as previously specified in your “IRP Research Questions and Data Set” exercise. You must also discuss the P, Pr, R-square values and their meaning and why they led to your decision.

As in previous DAX exercises, you must also attach the Summary Descriptive Statistics Table along with the ANOVA Results Table or Regression Results Table. Example ANOVA or Regression Tables required:

Space Invaders

What do road rage, street harassment, and mob violence have in common? They all are responses to perceptions that one’s space has been invaded.

Most articles on nonverbal communication and territory focus on how people “mark” their private and public spaces, such as when homeowners use fences to delineate their property lines or when students leave jackets on the seats they regularly occupy. Less often do we examine how invasions of space lead to antisocial behavior. However, like other animals, humans may respond aggressively when they believe their territory has been invaded.

A common type of space violation in the United States occurs when one driver cuts off another driver. When an individual pulls into the lane ahead and causes them to slow down, some drivers become angry. They may engage in acts of road rage, such as chasing after the offender, driving them off the road, or pulling a gun. Why would someone respond violently to a behavior that usually is only a minor inconvenience? People who do so typically have a strong sense of ownership over their cars and the spaces they occupy. They are likely to perceive that they have been disrespected and that the other person has willingly and arbitrarily invaded their territory. As a result, they feel the need to establish dominance over “their” space by responding aggressively.

Another regularly occurring response to perceived territory invasion is street harassment. Street harassment is a form of verbal or nonverbal harassment that has a sexual component. It is typified by debasing, objectifying, or threatening behavior designed to intimidate. Most women, and some gay men, have experienced it. How is this behavior a response to space invasions? Social control theory argues that street harassment is, at least in part, an effort on the part of many men to mark the public domain as their territory. In these cases, women without male partners are seen as violators of men’s territory, and street harassment is viewed as a way to discourage them from intruding into this space alone (Lord, 2009). This behavior appears to be successful. A majority of women report that they have changed where they walk or live to avoid street harassment.

Yet another response to space intrusions is mob violence. You may have wondered why peaceful protests so often devolve into aggression. In part, they do so because as the group becomes more crowded, each person’s zone of personal space become smaller, and as a result, people began to feel hostile. As the group continues to grow and personal space is rendered nonexistent, individuals grow angrier and less civil, which can lead to violence. Even peaceful demonstrations can become disruptive, and angry ones can become lethal.
