Race and Sex Differences Among Children in Perception of Emotion. Boston University Communication Research Center Report No. 27.
Gitter, A. George; Quincy, Arthur J., Jr.
A 2x2x2 factorial design was utilized to investigate the effects of race of expressor (black and white), race of perceiver, and sex of perceiver on perception of emotion (POE) in children. Perception of four emotions (anger, happiness, surprise, and pain) was analyzed in terms of three scores as DV's: (1) overall accuracy scores, (2) correct perception of individual emotions scores, and (3) erroneous perception of individual emotions scores. Results indicated insignificant main and interaction effects for all of the DV's. Theoretical implications of the impact of cultural forces of POE were discussed. (Author)
