Mate-Related Motives: The Impact of it on Self-Regulated Learning

mate-related motives

This article discusses a recent study that explores the impact of mate-related motives on self-regulated learning and study-time allocation to faces varying in attractiveness. The findings suggest that activating mate-related motives can lead to increased study time allocation to highly attractive faces, which may reflect a specialized cognitive mechanism for processing information related to potential mates and rivals. The study highlights the importance of considering social and evolutionary factors in understanding human cognition and behavior.
