    1. Sexual jealousy is hypothesized to become activated whenever there is a perceived threat to a mating relationship. The threats can come from a variety of sources – the presence of poachers, cues to infi delity, or even subtle signals that suggest that a partner might be dissatisfi ed with the current relationship. Once activated, a variety of psy-chological processes are hypothesized to be set into motion, such as evaluation of the nature and magni-tude of the threat and evaluation of potential courses of action. Eventually, these processes usually lead to behavioral output designed to deal with the threat –actions that can range from vigilance to violence.

      Sexual jealousy is the psychological response to intrasexual threats. This lead to a bast array of behavioral outputs.

    1. Act II, Scene III

      The play Julius Caesar had its inspirations in the real life assassination of Julius Caesar and events that followed after. William Shakespeare drew its characters from real people who lived in that time era. However, Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44BC, while Artemidorus lived around 200AD. Artemidorus is an anachronism, which is something that belongs to a different time period.

      In this scene, Artemidorus attempts to change the inevitable; The assassination of Caesar. Shakespeare’s use of anachronism indicates that there is no place for one to change the events that will follow, and that the assassination of Caesar is inescapable.

      Shakespeare uses this to carry the idea that with great power, others’ jealousy will come inevitably. In fact, in this scene, Artemidorus laments that “My heart laments that virtue cannot live out of the teeth of emulation.” This reaffirms the core idea in this scene: That people will always be envious and plot against those better than them, even virtuous men such as Caesar.
