A veritable plethora of scholarship has been devoted to attempting to define culture. The concept is complex yet most individuals have some idea about what the term means and includes. The idea of culture is so central to so much that makes us human that it is well worth our time to explore and unpack its meaning in some depth. We may find that our ideas about culture share much in common with others ideas about culture but we may also find some nuances or emphases in some definitions that are less apparent in other definitions. For this Discussion you will closely examine various definitions of culture and the importance it may have to the psychology community. What are some definitions of culture that researchers have utilized? What is a definition of culture that resonates with you and why? Why should psychologists be interested in understanding culture? Note: Be sure to support yourpostings and responseswith specific references to the Learning Resources and identify current relevant literature to support your work.

A study once found that for any given year there was a positive correlation between ice cream consumption and the crime rate (during the summer months). If ice cream consumption was high for a given year the crime rate was also high; if consumption was low the crime rate was also low. What can explain this phenomenon?

A recent difficult decision I have made involves work and family and trying to balance the two. As a public speaker I was asked to attend a fundraiser and speak at it for the closing ceremony which I was absolutely interested in doing. However the dates that were decided fall on my five-year wedding anniversary and my sons second birthday (they are one right after the other). As someone who is growing her public speaking career it is important that I am available for as many opportunities as possible and that I get my voice heard. As a wife and mother my familys life events also hold high importance to me and considering missing them is painful. My options included going to the event and celebrating my familys milestones on alternative days or turning down the event and being at home for these milestones on their respective days. Weber and Johnson (9) discuss how characteristic of the decision maker can affect how they go about making their decision noting such characteristics as gender age cognitive traits/style age personality and health. In discussing gender they note that women can be more risk-averse and they perceive decisions to be higher risk when they lead to more emotional discomfort (Weber & Johnson 9). Weber and Johnson (9) also note that womens risk aversion is not biological but instead comes from a place of lower social standing in society and the belief of perceived risk being larger in all areas except for social risk. As a career focused woman and working mother I am constantly trying to balance this belief of risk versus reward with decisions that affect my family and I often find that how I perceive the potential consequences are quite different than how my husband does when we discuss options. Weber and Johnson (9) further discuss that when making decisions elements that affect our decisions are the information we have (including internal and external information and information that we must seek) the evaluation of this information through cognitive and affective processes and our internal state including beliefs values goals and prior experiences (p. 77). Not only would my husbands internal state be different from mine but how he evaluates the information provided will also be different influenced by his gender upbringing and so on. As decision making continues to be studied researchers are becoming more interested in the process of decision making. This has resulted in a better understanding of what can impede decision making. Two common impediments to decision making include heuristics and cognitive biases (Cherry 2020). Heuristics are judgements based on previously garnered information that allow for quick decisions to be made (Cherry 2020). Two types of heuristics are representative heuristics (judging the likelihood of an outcome based on a prototype we already have of that outcome) and availability heuristic (judging the likelihood of an event based on how quickly you can pull up other similar events) (Cherry 2020). Secondly cognitive biases can distort decision making (Cherry 2021). Cognitive biases come in many forms and they are a result of limited attention plus heuristics or mental shortcuts and their purpose is to help speed along decision making (Cherry 2021). Though biases influence decision making it does not only result in negative influence. Most importantly one must be well informed about potential biases and their influence over thoughts and decisions. In my situation I have biases involving both women in the workplace and the negative effect of them taking time for their family as well as the overrepresentation of women sacrificing for families. To make my decision I had to sift through the heuristics cognitive biases and distortions and try to determine which choice held the best reward for the risk. Reference: Cherry K. (2020).

A scale is a tool that researchers create to measure concepts. Each of the many

A scale is a tool that researchers create to measure concepts. Each of the many different types of scale designs has has a purpose and situations for which it is more or less appropriate. For instance when measuring opinions on abortion you may need to know more than whether a person agrees or disagrees that it should be legal. It may be more useful to know howstronglythat person agrees or disagrees in which case a Likert scale of 1“4 may be the most appropriate scale. In this scale 1 would be strongly disagree and 4 would be strongly agree (with no neutral response possible). This is just one possible solution. In survey research investigators must use reliable and valid scales to measure constructs. A standard 12-inch ruler is an example of a reliable tool”it will always measure 12 inches. Even if you have a tool that is reliable however you still need to know if the construct you are measuring is valid. For example many scales used in survey research measure stress. You also would need to determine whether the scale you are using is measuring the specific type of stress you are targeting and not a different type of stress or a similar construct such as anxiety. Validity is the idea that empirically your tool measures what it is intended to measure in that includes truth and meaning related to the construct. In psychology psychometrics is the area of statistical analyses related to the reliability and validity of tools. For reliability and validity you use standardized procedures and even a language to assess and describe the empirical reliability and validity aspects of your tools. In other disciplines you will see the termssociometrics econometrics biometrics and others”all of which focus on the properties for constructs. Taking reliability validity and psychometrics into consideration think of two factors you must consider when choosing or designing appropriate measurement scales in survey research. Then reflect on the role of psychometrics in scale development and assessment with emphasis on why it is critical from a utility and generalizability standpoint. Finally think of two examples of research question formats (e.g. agree/disagree subjective continuum) that you could use for your Research Proposal and why these formats are appropriate. With these thoughts in mind: By Day 4 Post by Day 4a brief description of two important factors you must consider when selecting and designing appropriate measurement scales in survey research. Then explain the role and importance of psychometrics in scale development and assessment. Finally provide two research questions formats that you could use for your Research Proposal and explain why each is appropriate.
