Travis Marziani Psychology 235 PP Paper # 6 Masculine Self Ch.5 1. I thought the whole Tahitian males way of thinking and life was very interesting. An idea of men not being aggressive or even being that different from women is a weird one in my opinion. I always kind of felt that women whether they will admit it or not are into the whole super macho kind of guy at least when it comes to non marriage situations. Hence why the jerks always seem to get the most beautiful girls and the nice guys tend to be left out to dry. In Tahiti however it’s only based on personality from what it sounds like. 2.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
