Gender and Preschoolers' Perception of Emotion.
Widen, Sherri C.; Russell, James A.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v48 n3 p248-62 Jul 2002
To examine how a person's gender influences the emotion children attribute to that person, 80 preschoolers were asked to name the emotion of either a boy (Judd) or girl (Suzy), given identical stories and pictures with identical facial expressions. Boys labeled Judd more often than Suzy as being disgusted. Girls labeled Suzy more often than Judd as being afraid. (Author/KK)
