Sex of Researchers and Sex-Typed Communications as Determinants of Sex Differences in Influenceability: A Meta-Analysis of Social Influence Studies.
Eagly, Alice H.; Carli, Linda L.
Psychological Bulletin, v90 n1 p1-20 Jul 1981
By analyzing the aggregated results of independent studies for possible sex biases in "influenceability" experiments, two hypotheses were tested: (1) content of influence inductions is biased in the masculine direction, and (2) sex typing of content relates to the sex difference outcomes of the experiments, with more masculine content associated with larger sex differences in the female direction.
