Who has the nicer lawn?
The “Three ancestral traits that drive proenvironmental behavior” reading was interesting & immediately made me think of the competition for the nicer lawn that my father & my neighbor seem to have. When one mows his lawn, the other often does that same day or the following day. Sometimes it seems like they mow their lawns a few times a week. This is demonstrating the “social recognition” & “social influence” principles discussed in the reading. The “social recognition” principle is demonstrated as they both want to out do each other & have a better looking lawn than each other. The “social influence” principle is demonstrated because they are emulating each other’s behavior.
