  Performance can be used as a DV but make sure to define what you mean (how you are measuring) performance and have it in the RQ.  For example, is it academic performance (GPA) or some other type of performance? And how would you link deviance to performance (is there a cut-off?). You have options but just make sure to specify exactly how you are using the term and how you will measure it and if it is different between your groups (if you use groups).  It seems like you might have too many variables in one RQ.  

Note what you have in your RQ:

What are the economic and social impacts (how?) that ADHD has on schools, families, the workforce, and the health system?


-economic impact (need measurement)

-social impact (need measurement)

Across four sample populations (IV): school, family, workforce, health system (note these groups would not be easy to compare to each other on the same DV)

See if you can fine-tune your RQ a bit to zoom in on one IV (can be groups or continuous) and one measurable DV.

What is the item that stood out to you, and why

The emotional aspect is essential in our daily activities as it significantly functions our existence. The article I read provided research, findings, and a conclusion on emotion. It gave positive and negative aspects of emotion. Some positive emotional parts are impression, intimacy, and influence—the element of intimacy aid an individual in acquiring their bonds with others. The influence and impression function is based on the information others get from expressing positive emotion. (Cosmides (2018). Positive information can be amicably used in the social context to achieve our goals and maintain social standards that motivate others to achieve their goals. Conversely, negative emotions can result in hatred that may make people distance themselves from others.

What did the authors of the study you selected examine in their research? What did they hypothesize and why (rationale)?

In the article, the author examined emotions’ role in success. He stated that emotion plays an enormous role in the production of success. It helps an individual not only address but also overcome the problem that may arise on their way. In texture, an element of fear may appear, enabling an individual to have an adaptive mechanism, thus escaping from a disaster. The author of the article hypotheses that emotion forms and maintains a social relationship. (Cosmides (2018). He also believes that feeling can establish and maintain a social position concerning others by generating self-esteem. The rationale that the author gives is that emotion help in either increasing or reducing bond with others. If there is a rise in positive emotion, the bond between the person increases and helps strengthen love, and the individual feels like staying close to one another. On the other hand, the rise in negative emotion may lead to individuals distancing from one another.

What methods did they use?

In this research, there was the conduction of experiment on a selected group sample. The chosen people were from different groups; some were those abandoned and neglected by their family members, while others lived in harmony with their parents. The data was conducted based on positive and negative emotions and analysis. Based on the importance of the social bond research, the social isolation of individuals does not only led to poor health and well-being but also inhibits the development of social, emotional, and cognitive skills.

What were the most meaningful findings the authors reported?

The author’s finding identified the nature of the social function. It stated that the social process of emotion is said to have an evolutio
