  • Greater Self-reported Health is Associated with Lower Disgust: Evidence
           for Individual Calibration of the Behavioral Immune System

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A key theoretical component of the behavioral immune system is its functional flexibility, where an individual’s reaction to pathogenic stimuli is designed to fluctuate based on individual costs and benefits. For example, those who perceive themselves to be more vulnerable to disease or are in poorer health should react more aversely to possible pathogenic agents because of the higher costs of infection. To test this hypothesis, we collected measures of current individual health (i.e., self-reported general health and self-perceived infectibility) and three domains of disgust in two studies: an in-person sample of United States university students and a global online sample of diverse ages. We also collected and assayed saliva samples for secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA), provided by the university students. Results showed that lower sIgA and higher perceived infectibility independently predicted higher pathogen disgust. Poor self-reported general health was associated with higher pathogen disgust in the university sample, but not in the online sample. Finally, pathogen disgust mediated the effect of perceived infectibility on behavioral avoidance motivation. Overall, our findings support the functional flexibility of the behavioral immune system, such that those who are more vulnerable to disease are more likely to respond aversely to situations with high pathogen load; however, future research should consider other contextual factors which affect the strength of this relationship between individuals and populations.

  • Evolutionary Adaptation Perspectives on Childcare with References to Life
           History Plasticity in the Modern World: Brazil, Russia, and the USA

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction The cooperative breeding framework suggests that help from extended family members with childrearing is important adaptation for our species survival, and it is universal. However, the degree of alloparental help may vary between societies, families, and over time. We hypothesized that maternal and paternal effort, as well as alloparental care, would depend both upon resource availability (SES) and different mating opportunities for males and females in three countries: Brazil, Russia, and the USA. Methods We analyzed the intergenerational interactions between family members during childcare via Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) in R-software. Online samples were collected from Brazil (N = 538), Russia (N = 502), and the USA (N = 308). Results and Discussion The results of our study are consistent with previous research on life history (LHT) plasticity, which has shown a negative correlation between the perceived childhood SES and perceived parental effort. However, our models indicated a possible cultural difference in the estimates of poverty paths: in Brazilian and American samples, SES had a greater impact on paternal care than on maternal, while in Russia, poverty had a greater effect on mothers’ effort. This reversed effect size on maternal versus paternal effort in Russia may suggest that Russian mothers experience a trade-off between working outside the home and direct childcare, while Russian fathers may adopt a “faster” LHT strategy as they are the limited sex in the mating pool. Our findings also demonstrate that the parental effort of both parents was positively associated, indicating their mutualistic relationship. We also found that according to the recollections of respondents’ maternal grandparents usually compensate the lack of paternal effort, but their help, as well as the help of paternal grandparents, was indifferent to the poverty cues.

  • Inducing Death Thoughts Reduces the Cortisol Response to Psychosocial
           Stress Similar to the Effects of Early-life Adversity: A Life-history
           Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Early-life adversity (ELA) affects health by altering the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis. Most studies show that ELA blunts HPA responsivity while others show the opposite. To explain this inconsistency, researchers investigate factors that alter associations between ELA and HPA responsivity. One factor could be conditions that participants encounter before exposure to stressors. Life-history theory suggests ELA alters HPA function by signalling high mortality. Similarly, death thoughts signal acute mortality. Research suggests that thinking about death induces behaviors typical of ELA subjects. We therefore tested whether death thoughts before acute stress mimics the effects of ELA on HPA responsivity. Methods One hundred twenty eight healthy young men were classified as high or low ELA based on retrospective self-report, and then primed with death thoughts (experimental group) or completed neutral questionnaires (control group). They then underwent a psychosocial stress task. Salivary cortisol was sampled repeatedly to assess HPA responsivity to stress. Results In the control group, higher ELA correlated with lower cortisol responsivity. In the experimental group, subjects with high ELA did not show altered cortisol responsivity, but low ELA participants displayed significantly blunted responsivity in response to death thoughts. Thus, low ELA participants primed with death thoughts resembled high ELA participants not exposed to death thoughts. Conclusion Our findings suggest that subtle death cues present in the testing environment may confound associations between ELA and HPA function and should be controlled for in future studies. We discuss how life-history theory could explain how both long-term (ELA) and acute (mortality salience) experiences alter HPA function.

  • The Scientific Revolution of Evolutionary Psychology: Current Status and
           Future Directions. A Commentary on Zagaria (2024)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Objectives: A bibliometric analysis by Zagaria (2024) claimed that research in Evolutionary Psychology (EP) lags behind research grounded in the Standard Social Science Model (SSSM) in prevalence and growth rate, questioning EP’s status as a scientific revolution. This commentary aims to re-evaluate Zagaria’s findings and conclusions. We raise two major concerns about his analysis. First, Zagaria’s EP syntax excluded key EP terms like fitness, psychological adaptation, and parental investment, while the SSSM syntax included homonyms (e.g., culture) not always relevant to SSSM (e.g., tissue culture in medicine). Second, the analysis included non-scientific journals from fields like gender studies, skewing results since EP is not intended to influence non-scientific fields like dance therapy or tourism studies. Focusing on high-impact psychology journals would better reflect EP’s influence. Methods: We revised the SSSM syntax to “cultural” and updated the EP syntax by adding “inclusive fitness,” “parental investment,” and “psychological adaptation.” Our analysis also used year-by-year data and 5- and 10-year rolling averages to assess trends more accurately. Results: Our analysis found that growth in EP and SSSM research is comparable over time, and the ratio of SSSM to EP papers was overstated by at least 23%. Conclusion: We highlight metrics that should be weighted more heavily than publication quantity, such as effect magnitude, universality, and replicability. By these metrics, EP is arguably outperforming the SSSM and embodies elements of the Kuhnian scientific revolution discussed by Zagaria (2024). This commentary offers a more optimistic vision for EP’s current status and future direction.

  • Neural Diversity and Decisions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Differences in choices provide a window into the variety of human preferences and behaviors. Most non-trivial decisions recruit multiple regions of the brain with activity that shows substantial variation across individuals and also depends on personality traits and attitudes. Methods The present study measured nine physiologic factors and collected 15 types of psychological data while participants made decisions in standard tasks measuring risk aversion, patience, altruism, cooperation, generosity, trust, and trustworthiness. Robust predictors were defined as those that were statistically significant in both forward and backward stepwise regressions using all the collected independent variables. Results The analysis showed that multiple measures of physiologic stress decrease cooperative behaviors while testosterone consistently increased antisocial behaviors. In addition, cognitive abilities robustly increased patience but decreased cooperation, while those more satisfied with their lives were more trustworthy. Participants scoring high on the personality trait of imagination were shown to be less altruistic and generous, while neuroticism increased prosociality. Conclusion This study identified key drivers of behaviors that should be measured in decision-making experiments in order to capture the multiple factors that affect choices. We conclude with suggestions on how to establish causal relationships between the identified factors and decisions.

  • What Drives Mating Effort: Fear of Singlehood, Relationship Status, and
           Self-Esteem

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Attracting and maintaining a romantic partner requires considerable effort. In the current study, we aimed to test the hypothesis that fear of singlehood is a primary factor driving individuals to allocate scarce resources in the mating domain. Methods We conducted a close-ended survey with a sample of 990 Greek and Turkish-speaking participants. Results We found that that a stronger fear of singlehood was associated with higher mating effort. Moreover, voluntarily single participants experienced lower fear of singlehood compared to other categories of singles and individuals in intimate relationships. Additionally, higher self-esteem was associated with lower fear of singlehood. We also identified a significant indirect effect of relationship status and self-esteem on mating effort through fear of singlehood. Specifically, involuntarily single individuals tended to exert more mating effort due to heightened fear of singlehood compared to those in other relationship status categories. Furthermore, higher self-esteem was associated with reduced mating effort, as it was associated with lower fear of singlehood. These findings held true across both the Greek and Turkish samples. Conclusion Relationship status and self-esteem play a role in mating effort through fear of singlehood.

  • Visualizing Self: Altruism is (Un)Affected by Field Versus Observer
           Representations of Self

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose This study examines the impact of first-person versus third-person mental visualizations of self on prosocial behavior, building on research that links perspective-taking to differences in moral judgments, agency, and self-awareness. A first-person perspective of self typically enhances feelings of agency, personal responsibility, and empathy, which has been hypothesized to lead to greater helping. However, a third-person perspective of self may heighten self-awareness, potentially leading to a greater focus on reputation management and consequently, helping. Methods In two preregistered experiments we test the impact of perspective taking of self on altruistic behavior. Experiment One (n = 599) manipulates generalized perspective taking of self during memory recall and assesses its effect on the amount of time individuals engage in a charitable activity. Experiment Two (n = 271) extends this investigation to explore how targeted perspective taking of self while visualizing a future volunteer activity influences intention to volunteer and actual volunteering. Results Across both experiments we found no evidence of an effect of perspective taking on altruistic behavior. Conclusion Our results contrast with previous research suggesting that differences in mental visualizations of self influence prosocial behaviors. These findings underscore the complexity of this research area and call for a deeper examination of the theoretical frameworks and methodology used in studies.

  • Lifehistory Trade-Offs Influence Women’s Reproductive Strategies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective In a UK national census sample, women from the upper and lower socioeconomic (SES) classes achieve parity in completed family size, despite marked differences in both birth rates and offspring survival rates. We test the hypothesis that women adopt reproductive strategies that manipulate age at first reproduction to achieve this. Methods We use a Monte-Carlo modeling approach parameterized with current UK lifehistory data to simulate the reproductive lifehistories of 64,000 individuals from different SES classes, with parameter values at each successive time step drawn from a statistical distribution defined by the census data. Results We show that, if they are to achieve parity with women in the higher socioeconomic classes, women in lower socioeconomic classes must begin reproducing 5.65 years earlier on average than women in the higher SES classes in order to offset the higher class-specific mortality and infertility rates that they experience. The model predicts very closely the observed differences in age at first reproduction in the census data. Conclusions Opting to delay reproduction in order to purse an education-based professional career may be a high risk strategy that many lower SES women are unwilling and unable to pursue. As a result, reproducing as early as possible may be the best strategy available to them.

  • Is Evolutionary Psychology a Scientific Revolution' A Bibliometric
           Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective The emergence and growth of Evolutionary Psychology (EP) in the behavioral sciences has been characterized as a “scientific revolution” (e.g. Buss, 2020). According to Kuhn's framework, a scientific revolution in a discipline is marked by the emergence of a new, dominant school of thought, which eclipses all the other theories. The aim of this study was to assess quantitatively if EP may be regarded as a "scientific revolution" sensu Kuhn. Method I performed a bibliometric analysis of the prevalence of EP (broadly defined) in Psychology, and contrasted it with the prevalence of the socio-cultural approach, known as the Standard Social Science Model (SSSM) (Tooby & Cosmides, 1992). Results My analysis reveals that the SSSM enjoys significantly greater prominence than EP and is growing at a swifter pace. My analysis also suggests that a “cultural evolutionary” approach, which integrates evolutionary and cross-cultural perspectives, is still underdeveloped. Conclusions Despite being sympathetic to the claim that EP can potentially lead to a paradigm shift in the behavioral sciences, I argue that a prudent approach may involve recognizing the current state of affairs, envisioning realistic change, and building a more conceptually and methodologically heterogeneous research community in EP.

  • Evolutionary Roots of Occupational Burnout: Social Rank and Belonging

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Occupational burnout is a globally pandemic public health concern, exerting high costs on organizations, consumers, and workers. Amid definitional debate regarding burnout, psychometric research finds substantial construct overlap with clinical depression. In turn, evolutionary models explaining the adaptive origins of depression bring vital clarity to our conceptions of burnout. Of particular relevance are explanations of depression as an ancient appeasement strategy to avert conflict with higher-ranking group members, or dangerous in-group alliances. These dynamics underlie the relationship between dominance-oriented leadership styles and supervisee burnout, and can serve as leverage points to improve psychological safety, job satisfaction, and, ultimately, workplace productivity. Such models also provide key insights into the relationship between workgroup conflict and burnout, and the mental health problems increasingly identified among remote workers—in particular, difficulties with isolation, and with the constraints of communication technologies. While largely neglected in the organizational literature, the evolutionary sciences offer a pathway to correct mismatches between the environments in which our social instincts evolved, and the modern-day workplace.

  • Assessing the Roles of Symmetry, Prototypicality, and Sexual Dimorphism of
           face Shape in Health Perceptions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Health perceptions are thought to play an important role in human mate preferences. Although many studies have investigated potential relationships between health ratings of faces and facial symmetry, prototypicality, and sexual dimorphism, findings have been mixed across studies. Consequently, we tested for potential relationships between health ratings of faces and the symmetry, prototypicality, and sexual dimorphism of those faces’ shapes. When these three shape characteristics were considered in separate regression models, we observed significant positive relationships between health ratings and both shape symmetry and prototypicality. By contrast, health ratings and sexual dimorphism were not significantly correlated in these analyses. However, in analyses in which symmetry, prototypicality, and sexual dimorphism were entered simultaneously as predictors in a single model, prototypicality, but not symmetry, was significantly correlated with health ratings. Moreover, sexual dimorphism predicted health ratings of female, but not male, faces in these analyses. Collectively, these results suggest that the relationship between symmetry and health ratings is, at least partly, driven by the effect of prototypicality on health perceptions and highlight the importance of considering multiple aspects of face shape when investigating factors that predict perceived health.

  • Cross-Cultural Preferences for Women’s Waist to Hip Ratio and Men’s
           Shoulder to Hip Ratio: Data From Iran, Norway, Poland, and Russia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Body size and shape are sexually dimorphic in humans, with men being characterized with larger upper bodies, while women typically having broader pelvises. Such sexually dimorphic traits, quantified as shoulder to hip ratio (SHR) in men and waist to hip ratio (WHR) in women, serve as cues of an individual’s genetic fitness, reproductive potential, health, and resource holding power, and, thereby, functioning as attractiveness cues to the opposite sex. Methods In the current study, we investigated men’s and women’s preference for the opposite sex body shape (WHR in women and SHR in men) in samples from Iran, Norway, Poland, and Russia. Women rated their preference for men’s SHR (1.20 to 1.50) and men rated their preference for women’s WHR (0.55 − 0.85). Results and Conclusion Our results showed that Iranian and Norwegian men preferred less feminine WHRs in women compared to Polish and Russian men. Moreover, Iranian women preferred less masculine SHRs in men than women from other countries. Altogether, the current research showed that there are variations in men’s preferences for women’s WHR and women’s preferences for men’s SHR among these countries.

           Decision-Makers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives Decision-making is often driven and guided by the evaluation of action effects and external cues on action outcomes, which are essential to optimize behavior in an adaptive manner. This work aimed at investigating decision-makers’ sensitivity to external cues (including positive and negative reinforcement) and their flexibility in using feedback to decide whether to stay or change the course of their choices. We also explored the neurofunctional correlates of individuals’ ability to re-assess their decisions in response to feedback, and its possible association with general decision-making styles. Methods A realistic decision-making task set in a professional context was devised and administered in addition to the General Decision Making Style (GDMS) inventory. During the task, neurofunctional correlates of affective regulation, cognitive engagement, and information-processing load were non-invasively measured via wearable EEG. Results Participants showed a tendency to maintain their decisions following positive reinforcement, or when no explicit feedback was provided. Surprisingly, some of them tended to stay with their decisions also following negative feedback. We observed lower cognitive effort, as marked by lower prefrontal beta power, following positive feedback. Finally, we reported negative correlations between GDMS Dependent style scores and task scores in the positive feedback and no-feedback conditions, along with a positive correlation between GDMS Spontaneous style scores and task scores in the no-feedback condition. Conclusions Our findings have implications for understanding adaptive and maladaptive decision-making in contexts in which feedback serves as a compass to orient one’s own performance and prevent the so-called cognitive inertia.

  • Does Testosterone Modulate Aggression and Mating Behavior in Humans' A
           Narrative Review of Two Decades of single-dose Testosterone Administration
           Research

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective Decades of research suggest a small, but significant positive association between testosterone (T) and measures of aggression and mating psychology/behavior. More recently, researchers have developed single-dose pharmacological challenge paradigms to test the causal role of T in modulating such processes. Methods We summarize and synthesize research from single-dose T administration studies. We first summarize the literature showing effects of T on neural and physiological functioning. Next, we investigate T’s effects on aggressive behavior and mating psychology in humans. Results Evidence indicates that a single dose of T can have relatively rapid effects on aggression and mating psychology/behavior. However, such effects are often complex and moderated by personality, genetics, and social-contextual factors. Conclusion Popular media discourse suggests that T is straightforwardly intertwined with aggression and sexual behavior. Our review indicates that there is a kernel of truth to T’s links to these complex phenotypic outcomes. However, more work will be necessary to establish the role that psychological, genetic, and social-contextual factors play in moderating associations of T with aggression and sexual behavior.

  • On the Usefulness of Behavior Genetics: Using Family Studies in
           Evolutionary Psychological Science to Improve Causal Inference and Sharpen
           Theory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objectives We argue that research in the psychological sciences testing evolutionarily informed questions could benefit considerably from more frequent use of techniques common in behavior genetics. Methods We review some of the reasons why data and analytical strategies in behavior genetics confer certain advantages over more traditional forms of data analysis. In particular, we focus on the wide availability of secondary data, the generalizability of data, the capacity of certain designs to bolster causal inference capabilities, and the overall adaptability of the research designs to a wide array of empirical questions. Results Not only do we show how the use of sibling designs can be of methodological assistance, but we also demonstrate how they can play a role in refining theories informed by evolution. In order to give a more concrete vision of what this can look like, we offer a type of case study using prior work which has already taken advantage of behavior genetic tools. Conclusions Because of the efforts to situate psychological science in the context of evolutionary biology, the field has undergone considerable intellectual growth. We suggest that by simply making more frequent use of tools in behavior genetics, the fields of psychology might further accelerate the progress that is already well underway.

  • Stress and Androgens in Himba Women

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Adrenal androgens like dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) are important to numerous aspects of health and psychosocial stress physiology. DHEA is responsive to stress, and previous studies have shown chronic stress can be associated with a reduction in DHEA. However, the large majority of this work has been conducted in resource-rich, industrialized societies, with few studies examining how adrenal androgens respond to stressors in environments with persistent resource related concerns. Here we examine the relationships between androgens and chronic psychosocial stress in a sample of Himba pastoralists, in order to determine the relationship between DHEA and stress in a resource-limited environment. Methods We assayed DHEA and testosterone in 122 afternoon saliva samples from 46 Himba women aged 18–66, median age 30. Women also completed a chronic psychosocial stress survey, which included social, health, and resource related stressors reported over the past thirty days. Results DHEA concentrations show a curvilinear relationship with age, peaking in the mid-30s; testosterone was relatively flat across the life course. DHEA, but not testosterone, was negatively associated with chronic stress scores. In a comparison of question types, resource-related stressors showed the strongest relationship with DHEA. Conclusion Our results support findings from previous studies conducted in industrialized societies, showing that chronic stress is associated with a reduction in DHEA concentrations. In contrast, salivary testosterone appears unrelated to chronic stress. Given the associations between DHEA and other aspects of health, better understanding of drivers of DHEA variability can elucidate linkages between stressors and health outcomes.

  • Organizational Effects of Gonadal Hormones on Human Sexual Orientation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Sexual attraction to males or females is perhaps the largest behavioral sex difference across animal species. Experiments in laboratory mammals show that prenatal androgens mediate this sex difference, but ethical considerations preclude such experimentation in humans. Multiple lines of converging correlational evidence are therefore needed to demonstrate such mediation in humans. Methods We review available data linking human sexual orientation to endocrine action, including research on endocrine disorders and biomarkers of early sex hormones. We also perform a meta-analysis across 13 studies comprising 56,804 individuals to investigate a possible link between non-heterosexuality and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), an endocrine condition associated with elevated androgens in females. Results and conclusions We find converging evidence that prenatal gonadal hormones influence the development of human sexual orientation and orchestrate its sexual differentiation primarily by regulating patterns of gene expression in the developing brain. Evidence is particularly strong that androgens increase sexual attraction to females. In our meta-analysis, PCOS was more common in non-heterosexual females (r = 0.18, p < 0.001). Some evidence also indicates that estrogens increase sexual attraction to males. We discuss why data may be less clear regarding variation in sexual orientation among males, including the possible existence of subgroups characterized by distinct biological pathways that contribute to same-sex sexual orientation. Moving forward, we propose that multiple measures and/or markers be considered together to better characterize early hormonal action on human sexual orientation.

  • Perceptions of Beardedness for Attractiveness, Masculinity, Fighting
           Ability, and Partner Quality: A cross-cultural Examination Among Hispanic
           and Iranian Women

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Men’s beardedness is a sexually dimorphic trait that has played a role in both inter- and intra-sexual selection. It has been suggested that women may prefer bearded men because it may be a cue to men’s underlying physiology and immune function. Beardedness has also been implicated in perceptions of men’s aggressiveness and dominance. In the current research, we explored preferences for men’s beardedness among Iranian and Hispanic women and whether those preferences were moderated by trait pathogen proneness. In Study 1, Hispanic women were recruited and asked to choose the beard profile, from clean-shaven to very long, on a variety of traits (i.e., attractiveness, masculinity, fighting ability, reliable partner, and suitable father). Women more frequently chose light and moderate-length beard types across all outcome measures, and their self-reported levels of disgust was associated with higher preferences for clean-shaven profiles. In Study 2, Hispanic and Iranian women were recruited and asked to rate the beard profiles across the measures. Compared to Iranian women, Hispanic women demonstrated a stronger preference for bearded men. Further, there were cultural differences in self-reported measures of disgust and their preferences for beards in men. The findings from the current study highlight the unique preferences across populations for bearded profiles in men, and they suggest that they may be associated with pathogen trait levels.
