Discussion: What Have You Learned From Others?
Whether we like it or not, we are exposed to environmental influences every day that shape our behavior and how we view ourselves. While the influence of media is undeniable, the first and most profound models of appropriate gender-specific behaviors are our parents or other primary caregivers. From a very early age, children begin to develop their gender identity by observing and emulating behaviors of same-sex caregivers. You can probably easily think of 3-4 behaviors you observed from a same-sex parent or caregiver that you continue to emulate to this day. In this discussion, you will explore this topic in more depth by considering which behaviors of a same-sex adult you possess and why, based on Bandura’s social cognitive theory.
· Review this week’s Learning Resources on social psychology and sex-linked modeling.
· Think about how social psychology and, specifically, Bandura’s social cognitive theory, explains how modeling affects cognitive development and behavior.
· Consider your childhood and select a same-sex adult who influenced your personal development. The same-sex adult could include a primary caregiver, extended member of the family, or family friend with whom you were close as a child.

RE: Discussion – Week 6
Very good points on how your father helped you jand is still influencing you to this day. You mentioned that you were six when you realized gender is always constant. According to Bussey and Bandura (1984), children’s differentiation of gender roles and their perception of themselves as more similar to same-sex models precedes, rather than follows, identification. Do you think that it was only your dad that influenced or your ability to differentiate between your mother and father’s strengths that helped you more with the identification of gender roles and being successful in life?

RE: Discussion – Week 6
Hi Tim. These are some great ways you shared about how you modeled same sex behavior.
This week, we read an interesting article by Bussey and Bandura (1984) that you referred to in your post. I found this to be a very interesting article. Reflecting on the findings from this article, do you agree with the authors’ conclusion about modeling of same sex individuals? Why or why not? Do you think they ignore important factors that determine who we model?
