Sex-role attitudes and situations: Female behavioral predictors in a learning task
Journal of Psychology: Interdisciplinary and Applied
Female American college students (n = 29) who differed in terms of their sex-role attitudes were asked to learn nonsense syllables paired with photographs depicting a male and a female engaged in activities differing in their sex-role appropriateness. Sex-role neutral slides were learned the fastest followed by the sex-role inappropriate slides. Appropriateness of portrayed activity was found to interact with sex of cue figure. Syllables matched to photographs of a male engaged in sex-role inappropriate activities were learned faster than those matched to pictures of a male engaged in sex-role appropriate activities. No such difference was observed for the female cue figure. © 1983 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
