- ItemConfronting assumptions about our grandmothers' legacy and challenges faced by our female ancestors(2021) Honey, P. Lynne; Semenyna, Scott W.The article discusses the target article by T. Reynolds which articulated the tension between cooperation and competition, wherein women's social behaviors are biased toward maintaining support from friends and lovers while competing with them. Topics include sex differences associated with the formation and maintenance of friendships, long-term mating as the measure of success, and limitations of generalizing from western, educated, industrialized, rich, and democratic (WEIRD) samples.
- ItemDominance styles mediate sex differences in Dark Triad traits(2015) Semenyna, Scott W.; Honey, P. LynneWe sought to determine what styles of social dominance are associated with Dark Triad traits (i.e., narcissism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism) and whether sex differences in Dark Triad traits are mediated by dominance styles measured by the Dominance and Prestige Scale, and the Rank Styles with Peers Questionnaire. Machiavellianism, psychopathy, and narcissism are strongly associated with dominance-striving, but only narcissism is consistently correlated with prestige-striving. Dark Triad traits are negatively correlated with coalition-building, but positively correlated with dominant leadership and ruthless self-advancement. Sex differences in Dark Triad traits were mediated by various dominance styles, but mainly by dominance-striving and ruthless self-advancement. These results suggest that particular styles of social dominance are utilized by both men and women with Dark Triad traits.
