Contextual Determinants of Achievement Responses in Men and Women.
Albino, Judith E.; Shuell, Thomas J.
Picture stimuli depicting females and males working together were shown to college students by either a male or a female experimenter. Subjects' responses to the pictures were assessed using standard need achievement scoring. A significant interaction was obtained between sex of subject and sex of experimenter, such that higher need achievement scores were obtained by males when the experimenter was male. A categorical analysis of achievement attributions in responses revealed no differences in achievement roles and levels ascribed to female or male stimulus figures, although both male and female students ascribed higher occupational status to males than to females.
