Personal Need for Structure and Attitudes toward Homosexuality.
Smith, Michael R.; Gordon, Randall A.
Journal of Social Psychology, v138 n1 p83-87 Feb 1998
Examines the need to cognitively structure reality through the use of stereotypes as a predictor of individual attitudes toward homosexuality. Shows that responses were slightly, yet significantly, related to attitudes toward homosexuality and that the gender of the respondent did not significantly alter the impact. Suggests additional future research topics. (DSK)
