How does social pressure affect sticktoitiveness?

I want to learn as much as possible about the psychology of purposely forming new habits (like exercising each day) or sticking to something which requires daily work (like learning a language). I am especially interested in the role that social pressure of peers can play in a person's success (Alcoholics Anonymous, study partners, even the recent findings that a person's weight is related to the weight of those close to them may be examples). Books, articles, jumping off points -- academic or otherwise -- would be very much appreciated!

List some specific, widely held, possibly irrational turn-ons.

Catnip to the ladies: Four female friends of mine recently had a conversation about what makes an attractive man. Opinions varied, but in the end, three traits were deemed "universally very hot": riding a motorcycle, building things out of wood, and having been in more than a few fistfights growing up. This baffled me to no end. Help me compile a longer list. [more inside]

Where to take psychology night classes in New York?

New York collegefilter. I'm thinking about applying to grad school for psychology. I'm 27, live in New York, and have a BA in something that is not psychology. I'd like to start taking non-credit classes now to strengthen my application, meet professors who could write letters of recommendation, and not least of all, make sure I really want to do this!
