In a large sample of developmentally educated researchers (N = 581) we looked at the predominance of convictions in a few important and contentious areas of human brain science and conduct. Almost all members agreed that formative experiences have a significant impact on adult human brain research and behavior that sex differences resulting from sexual determination give rise to differences in human brain research and behavior, and that individual differences in human brain science and behavior are caused by different genotypes There are compelling arguments for investigating the claims made by researchers with an evolutionary perspective. People frequently overlook the diversity among members of other groups in favor of emphasizing the individuality of group members. In 2015, According to Del Giudice, Gangestad, and Kaplan, life history theory is a potent explanatory framework that is being employed more frequently in research models on human psychology and behavior.[1].

The life history theory was created to help us better understand the factors that influence how organisms' life cycles vary. For instance, some species, like the rabbit, have relatively short lifespans, while other species, take a long time to mature and live long lives, and some species live in environments that are unpredictable. K-selected” Species living in stable and predictable habitats would have lower reproduction rates, longer intergenerational periods, and invest more in physiological maintenance and child care.[2].

In order to assess "Differential K," variation within the upper range of the continuum, initial psychometric measures of human life history variation were proposed (Figueredo, Vásquez, Brumbach, & Schneider, 2004). Hawkes & Paine (2006) and Low (1998) found that humans as a species are strongly K-selected, more like elephants than rabbits. Since ancient times, people have argued over how much behavior is influenced by nature and nurture. And every introduction to psychology course and textbook discusses the issue of whether nature or nurture is more important.[3].

The history of behavioral evaluation has witnessed a number of significant methodologies, each of which has merits and problems of their own. Ethology uses observational research, which can examine behavior in a descriptive manner but has a number of drawbacks, including the absence of environmental control and behavioral evaluation standardization. Comparative psychology techniques oversimplified the underlying behavioral architecture while reducing the complexity of the behavior by employing a highly controllable environment. The field of (social) behavioral research has been made easier by the advent of sophisticated and accurate tracking methods, as well as the numerous post-tracking analysis programmers.[4].

This has allowed behavior to be assessed in a more realistic contextual setting. Without the interference of test-specific anxiety and arousal of the animals, this enables the analysis of behavior in a more descriptive manner while maintaining a certain level of objectivity. Fundamental social behavioral research will benefit from the use of body posture tracking and machine learning analysis, but it will also be possible to better understand the effects of numerous other factors, such as stress exposure, sex, motivation, recording length, various developmental stages, ageing, and housing conditions.[5].
