  5. 5. Fill in the blanks, using the words. Try to work them out on your own. You can use words more than once. People_________ possible mates from a range of eligible candidates. The theory suggests that people use___________ methods at different levels of the process. We start with__________ variables such as _______ or class. We then move to more individual and __________ values such as people’s ______________. For__________ variables we are likely to seek ____________ whereas for ___________ values it may be more important to seek ___________________ characteristics.
  6. 6. 1) Using the cards in front of you, try to work out the five factors Kerckhoff and Davis highlighted as being important in the filtering process. Match up the key term, the definition, and the symbol to help you remember. 2) Put the filters in order of importance, most important first! Factor Description Revision Aid
  7. 7. Factor Proximity Description Most people will form a relationship with people close to them geographically. This is mainly due to chance they will meet, speak or generally become aware of one another. Physical Attraction How good looking someone is has been found to be one of the most important factors in initial relationship formation, as well as longer lasting relationships. Similarity Most people will come into contact with people from the same social or cultural background. This can also be the case for internal characteristics such as attitudes, or personality traits. Complement of Needs Not all personality characteristics need to be the same, we are often attracted to people who can give us what we lack. A dominating person may like a submissive person. Competence Revision Aid How intelligent and competent one appears can be influential in how attractive they are. 7/10 7/10
  8. 8. The first filter revolves around the fact that we only meet a very small fraction of people living in our area (proximity filter). Most of those we meet tend to be of a similar social class, education level and maybe even the same ethnicity or racial group (2nd similarity filter). The third filter is based on psychological (internal) factors. The chances of a short term relationship becoming more permanent depended most on shared beliefs and values, and personality variables. Similarity Social variables. Proximity. Internal Variables. Personalit y. Field of desirables
  9. 9. To study the model, Kerkoff and Davies conducted a study using students in a relationship for less than 18 months (short term) with those in a relationship for over 18 months (long term). Using self-report questionnaires, the study found that attitude similarity was the most important factor up to 18 months. However in the long term couples complimenting each others needs became the most important factor.
  10. 10. Based on the Filter Model… Create a facebook profile for the perfect match to Rebecca Smith. Annotate the blank template with your ideas. You MUST explain your decisions in relation to the Filter Model. Use phrases such as.. ‘We’ve picked this because…’ ‘This supports ____ filter...’
  11. 11. Get out your description of Rebecca’s partner from the Reward/Need Satisfaction theory. Compare the two. 1) Did you create two similar matches? Why or why not? 2) How do the two theories compare?
  12. 12. 1) Look at these celebrity couples. Try to explain why their relationship was formed according to the Filter Model. Write your explanation on a post it note with the names of the celebrities, and stick it on the board.
