Evolutionary psychology seeks to explain psychological attributes through applying evolutionary theory to behaviour that is held to derive from natural selection and adaptation. In this regard, humans have inherited psychological mechanisms from their ancestors that helped solve enduring problems throughout evolutionary time. Such mechanisms are assumed to constrain the behaviour of modern-day individuals. The study of evolutionary psychology enables you to research into history of man, as well and modern day society. Writing a psychology dissertation in this area may prove enjoyable for the author, as well as the reader.
The Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC) has been studied and validated within several groups (South African and Chinese adolescents, Korean students, firefighters, nurses, and Indian students). The studies conducted among the Chinese adolescents and Korean students showed that the original five-factor model of the CD-RISC was reproducible, the studies in India, South Africa, Australia and the United States did not find the model to be reproducible. Additionally, in two studies (Cambells-Sills and Stein, 2007) the original 25-item CD-RISC was even shown to be unstable over two identical populations. This lead to the development of the 10-item version of the instrument. The CD-RISC 10 established concrete psychometric factors.
The project may sound difficult to some but really it wasn't. The key element was careful planning and research, which, by far, exceeded the time devoted to the actual construction. I also acknowledge that the project wasn't exactly cheap. As a minimum you need a Mustang, a Hurricane and two Spit kits from Airfix. While a Stuka kit is also required, it is possible to keep it intact as it includes two sets of exhausts. Conversely, should you compare the cost of the Mk-IX project to some of the more recent models released and add on some resin and/or photo-etch sets, you will likely be out of pocket an equivalent amount. The big difference with a project such as this, however, is that the end product is truly unique.
