The Influence of Social Comparison with Less Fortunate Others on Task Performance: The Role of Gender Motivations or Appropriate Norms.
Huguet, Pascal; Monteil, Jean-Marc
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v33 n11-12 p753-65 Dec 1995
Tested whether social comparisons with probably less fortunate others differently affected boys and girls' cognitive performance in circumstances maximizing concerns about social integration and peer acceptance. Results from 64 French 10- to 12-year-old children show boys performed better than girls when adverse social comparison was anticipated, suggesting appropriate motivations and norms can influence cognitive functioning in a social context.
