The following study was conducted to investigate the influence of female emotional modeling on state anxiety. Sixteen males and 16 female participants were asked to watch a video detailing the instructions for the study. One video conveyed positive emotions and the other acted as a control and conveyed no emotion. Subjects completed the state portion of the State Trait Anxiety Inventory (Gorsuch, Luschene & Spielberger, 1970). A 2X2 between-subjects ANOVA design was used. Results from tins study were inconclusive and neither a main effect nor an interaction effect were found.
