5.1 Introduction
The most â€˜important and greatest puzzleâ€™ we face as humans is ourselves (Boring, 1950, p. 56). Humans are a puzzle â€“ one that is complex, subtle and multi-layered, and it gets even more complicated as we evolve over time and change in different contexts. When answering the question â€˜What makes us who we are?â€™, psychologists put forward a range of explanations about why people feel, think and behave the way they do. Just when psychologists seem to understand one bit of â€˜who we areâ€™

Researchers discover biological mechanism for growing massive animal weapons, ornaments
In the animal kingdom, huge weapons such as elk antlers or ornaments like peacock feathers are sexy. Their extreme size attracts potential mates and warns away lesser rivals. Now researchers led by scientists at the University of Montana and Washington State University have discovered a developmental mechanism they think may be responsible for the excessive growth of threatening horns or come-hither tail feathers.
