3 Getting that Female Glance Studied reasons or patterns why some men are more desirable and successful to women than others –Initiating conversation in a social night club scene –Assumes women respond to non verbal communication –Females are the choosier sex

4 Different Sections of Study Nonverbal Communication Categories –Intra-sexual Touch –Space Maximization Movements –Close vs. Open body positioning –Glancing Behavior –Auto-manipulations –Gesticulation Patterns

5 Methods 40 males Mean age 24 Unobtrusively observed over 14 evenings – 9:30-11:00pm Alternating Friday and Saturday nights in 3 college bars in Pennsylvania Focal males actions calculated –Able to maintain a conversation longer than a minute?  Contact successful –Unable to maintain conversation?  Non-contact

6 Methods Continued Study 1 & 2 –Study 1: Found male nonverbal behavior to be relevant to mate selection –Study 2: Observed female absent vs. female present conditions Female present: increase in male space maximization

7 Why don’t men cheat the system? 5 Hypotheses 1.Not yet understood how to exploit the system 2.Signals seen in research made describe only one type of courtship strategy 3.Males cooperate in courtship settings 4.Male cheating is limited through the detection of cheating 5.Honesty of male nonverbal signaling is tied to the redundancy of signals

8 Critique Limitations of Study 1 –Only conducted in 3 college bars in PA –Mean age of college students – 24 –Short observation time frame Limitations of Study 2 –Small sample size, only 9 males –Biased environment because it was a male dominated sports bar

9 Test Questions True or False 1. ___ Males exhibit more auto-manipulations and glancing behaviors when females are present. 2. ___ Males who show auto-manipulation behaviors are nervous in a social situation. 3. ___ In courtship settings, the male must make selection based on limited information.

10 Test Questions Continued Multiple Choice 1. What is one of the hypothesis that might limit male cheating? A) Males know that their female counterpart will catch them B) Males have not yet learned how to exploit the system C) Male cheating is NOT limited; males get away with cheating all the time 2. What levels are visible in male and female movement? A) Anxiety B) Sex C) Testosterone and estrogen 3. What is gesticulation? A) touching of the face B) rubbing of the hand C) Movement of the hands during discussion
