Social Stereotyping of the Physically Handicapped.
Weinberg-Asher, Nancy
Three hundred seventy-two college students completed person description questionnaires in an examination of social stereotyping of the physically handicapped. Ss rated a person identified by either age and sex (minimal description condition); age, sex, and as a person the S would like (liking condition); or age, sex, and either blind, deaf, or wheelchair-bound (disability conditions). Results indicated that in comparison to the minimally described person and the liked person, the disabled person was viewed as less socially skilled, more dependent, more politically conservative, and more personnally good. It was also found that the blind, deaf, and wheelchair persons were described as being quite similar to each other. (Author/CL)
