Gender and Credibility Introduction Effects on Perceived Counselor Characteristics.
Bernstein, Bianca L.; Figioli, Stuart W.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v30 n4 p506-13 Oct 1983
Assessed the effects of gender and credibility introduction on eighth graders' (N=240) perceptions of counselor expertness, attractiveness, trustworthiness, and confidence. Results showed that perceived expertness was more a function of the credibility introduction than of counselor gender with female counselors' ratings more sensitive to the credibility manipulation.
