Which statement best illustrates the idea that people adjust their behavior according to the gender schema theory?
Choose one answer.
a. Agnes tells her son that it is wrong to put makeup on his face and that boys don't wear dresses and skirts.
b. Bart sees two doors in the public restroom: one with a sign for men, the other with a sign for women. He goes into the door with the sign for men.
c. Martha is a single mother who raised a daughter while juggling two jobs-waitressing at a diner and operating a crane at the docks.
d. Andy speaks directly, and sometimes forcefully, to get what he wants. He is the opposite of his sister, who uses tact and charm to get her way.
Since the gender schema applies to how children learn from culture, I would go with choice a.
