Sixty-two sophomore students who enrolled in an online introductory programming course participated in the study. An achievement test was used to put forward their learning performances. As a result, significant relationships between learning styles, study habits, and learning performances were revealed.
Sylvia Beyer Abstract With the surge of consumer interest in popular culture media, it is surprising that little research has been conducted into the conventions that celebrate these themes.
Speed dating is a staple of these conventions. One of the activities at these conventions is speed dating, where many, if not most, of the speed daters are in cosplay.
What attracts these individuals to one another? We hypothesized that men are more attracted to women dressed in seductive rather than demure cosplay or in street clothes. The study included two female confederates wearing either seductive, demure, or casual attire at a real-world cosplay speed dating event with 48 single men participating.
Instead, men were more attracted to a female confederate positively engaged in their dyadic interaction regardless of her attire. Introduction Within the last decade, those who enjoy all things geek have noticed a strange phenomenon: Cosplay is one such staple that has gained mainstream attention.
When first established inattendance was only InNew York Comic Con sawguests. One of the activities at these ACG conventions is speed dating, enabling those who enjoy popular culture and cosplaying to find like-minded potential romantic partners.
Unlike speed dating events in other venues, many, if not most, of the speed daters are in cosplay. Does the type of costume matter? We are not aware of any psychological studies on speed dating while cosplaying.
Attire The reason we chose to focus on attire as a determinant of attraction to a potential romantic partner is that our attitudes towards others can be affected by their clothing.
Of relevance is an experiment in which attitudes toward an individual based solely on attire were measured. Men approved more of sexual harassment if the woman was dressed provocatively than conservatively.
Women on the other hand were more sensitive to sexual harassment and were more prone to seek punishment than men, regardless of how the woman was dressed. This finding of women rating male transgressions against females more severely has been replicated in other studies.
Goals of this research Thus, seductive attire in women seems to be interpreted by men as sexual availability and enhances their attraction to a woman. Thus, our perception of others can change simply by the alteration of their wardrobe.
We thus hypothesized that men would show more interest in women in seductive rather than demure or casual cosplay. The present study observed the interactions of men with female confederates who either dressed in provocative cosplay, conservative cosplay, or inconspicuous casual clothing at a real-world ACG convention speed dating session.
This method was chosen because most research on speed dating has consisted primarily of studies that artificially measure judgments based on hypothetical scenarios in laboratory situations.
We managed to secure permission to conduct our research from the ACG convention at a venue in the Midwestern portion of the US. Furthermore, we received permission from the speed dating host to come into his sessions to video and audio record speed daters.
Of course we also obtained permission from participants. Prior to entering the speed dating session participants filled out an informed consent form, which explained that they would be video and audio recorded. We did not record individuals who did not give their express permission to us to do so.
All participants were fully debriefed regarding the purpose of the study and the use of deception using the mode of contact they preferred i. Participants Participants were 48 males, aged 18 and older. The mean age of these participants was All male speed daters who participated identified as heterosexual.
The participants who speed dated hoped to form romantic relationships and were not compensated. Materials Participants filled out an informed consent form, a Video Games Survey, and provided demographic information.
