- a giving priority to one's own goals over group goals, and defining one's identity in terms of personal attributes rather than group identifications
- b the sex chromosome found only in males. When paired with an X chromosome from the mother, it produces a male child.
- c the subfield of biology that studies the molecular structure and function of genes
- d the study of the evolution of behavior and the mind, using principles of natural selection.
- e the effect of one factor (such as environment) depends on another factor (such as heredity)

- the study of the relative power and limits of genetic and environmental influences on behavior
- a random error in gene replication that leads to a change
- any physical or verbal behavior intended to hurt or destroy
- The proportion of variation among individuals that we can attribute to genes. The heritability of a trait may vary, depending on the range of populations and environments studied.
- theory that children learn from their cultures a concept of what it means to be male and female and that they adjust their behaviors accordingly
5 True/False questions
x chromosome → the sex chromosome found in both men and women. females have two x chromosomes; males have one. an x chromosome from each parent produces a female child
gender role → a set of expected behaviors for males and for females
gender identity → the acquisition of a traditional masculine or feminine role
role → an understood rule for accepted and expected behavior
natural selection → the principle that, among the range of inherited trait variations, those that lead to increased reproduction and survival will most likely be passed on to succeeding generations
