What are some good topics to chose from when writing a correlation essay in psychology?





I am back in school again (since the mid 90's) and I am taking a psychology course. Over the course of the semester, I have to turn in 3 correlation essays explaining how 2 variables in psychology are realted, not caused by, but related. I am finding it difficult to understand what my choices would be. I know I can pick them myself but I have no idea of how to get started. I am just asking this question to get some ideas together so I can begin my paper sometime this week.
