The Huron University College Journal of Learning and Motivation


Gender differences are not often studied in the field of arousal misattribution. This research examines 40 male and female participants in a neutral condition and an anger arousal condition to determine if there is an effect of gender. Participants were undergraduate students from Huron University College. Each participant was asked to look at photographs of either neutral or anger arousing stimulus and then rate the attractiveness of eight photographs of male and female faces. They were then asked to fill out a short questionnaire. Results showed no significant gender effect, F(1,36) = 1.44, p> 0.05. Possible explanations and previous research theories are discussed.
