What's in a Title? The Ms. Stereotype and Images of Women's Titles of Address.
Dion, Kenneth L.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v11 n1 p21-36 Mar 1987
University students presented with a description of a stimulus person whose title of address was varied (Ms., Mrs., Miss, or Mr.) conveyed their impressions on semantic differential ratings and life outcome ratings. Found women who preferred the title Ms. appeared more achievement oriented, socially assertive, and dynamic, but less interpersonally warm, than those addressed with traditional titles. (Author/KS)
