Only talks about certain types of people, perhaps you could call them mainstream?. For instance I am a female who (always not just when not ovulating) prefers feminine guys and is repelled by excessive testosterone. According to this video I would prefer masculine men. I know many other women with the same taste as myself. If everything is according to the desirability of a good mate for breeding (according to how they defined the traits of a good mate for breeding) why would I feel so effected by feminine men and repelled by masculine ones? I am just one example.
It is not really a drawback, but this video really changes course in the last ten minutes. It goes all humanistic to try to make the inherent determinism of the behavior genetics approach a little more palatable for general audiences. It moves from research to philosophy. My classes seem to appreciate that, but it is a switch in direction at the end.
Overall, it is an outstanding effort for something that was created for TV.
It's true, my beau smells damn good.
Overall, an excellent documentary. There's a lot of good information in there, and a couple theories I hadn't actually heard.
The experiment where people paired off by attractiveness was probably fairly traumatic for the participants, though. '_'
They do get a bit soft on science at the end for the sake of romance. I understand. I hope to mate for life, afterall. I do, however, think all behavior can be explained with enough context.
