Expert opinion[edit]

This looks more like someone's research essay than an encyclopedia article. An outside opinion would be appreciated.--Strikerforce (talk) 19:25, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Sentence broken?[edit]

Under "Approaches", this passage. I'm going to highlight four pronouns to make the problem apparent. "These approaches define social competence based on how popular one is with his peers. The more well-liked one is, the more socially competent they are."

"His" with the antecedent "one" is unusual today, but documented as correct. However, after that usage, the antecedent of "they" can only be "peers". The fact that my peers like me is official evidence of their social competence? Well, I'll buy that, but it sounds like a pretty subjective criterion. —Wegesrand (talk) 09:54, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
