An article on Oct. 23 about tensions between the Obama administration and the Fox News Channel misstated the day on which Fox News’s competitors refused an attempt by the administration to exclude Fox from a round of official interviews that was to be recorded by a pool camera crew shared by all the major news networks. It was last Thursday, Oct. 22 not Tuesday, Oct. 20.
Arbitrary numbers—referred to by researchers as numerical anchors—can have a surprisingly large impact on people's judgments. 1 We often lack the information we need for the judgments we are asked to make. You might be asked to estimate the length of the Nile river, for example, and find that you can only guess at the answer. To make that judgment, research shows that you are likely to grasp at whatever information you happen to have on hand, even if it’s completely irrelevant. If you’ve recently been looking at the prices of new cars, you might guess that the Nile is shorter than if you’ve recently been looking at the prices of new houses. This phenomenon, known as the anchoring effect, has been demonstrated in hundreds of studies on everything from general knowledge to legal sentencing decisions.
Modern psychology and sociology began to emerge in the late 19th century. During this time theorists often included relationships into their current areas of research and began to develop new foundations which had implications in regards to the analysis of intimate relationships.  Freud wrote about parent–child relationships and their effect on personality development .  Freud's analysis proposed that people's childhood experiences are transferred or passed on into adult relationships by means of feelings and expectations.  Freud also founded the idea that individuals usually seek out marital partners who are similar to that of their opposite-sex parent.
