Experimental Social Psychology: Group 2
Transcript of Experimental Social Psychology: Group 2
University of Mississippi student perceptions of gender role conformity through apparel.
Surveyed 22 participants; 3 males, 19 females
10 outfit ratings, 7 demographics
Some demographic questions controlled for confounds; at end to not prime the participant
We predict that there will be a higher level of perceived gender neutral and not feminine outfits worn among women; despite the fact clothing options being presented are commonly considered five normal Ole Miss male outfits and five normal Ole Miss female outfits (not exactly feminine or masculine specific).
And we wanted to see what percentages of students on campus actually wore each outfit that was presented in the survey.
Outfits, 10 levels
Perceived masculinity and femininity, and frequncey on the Ole Miss campus
2 PARTS: Survey & Observational Study
In the survey, we were able to determine what masculine and feminine perceptions of the everyday clothing for male and female students on the University of Mississippi campus had, gauge the preference level of each gender’s own or opposite gender’s clothing, and noted how frequent these items were perceived to be worn on campus by both genders
In the observational study, in a high-traffic environment we determined if students indeed wear and conform to what they report they perceive daily on camp.

100% - 8 subjects, 3 experimenters
We predicted that there would be a higher level of perceived gender neutral and not feminine outfits worn among women; despite the fact clothing options being presented are commonly considered five normal Ole Miss male outfits and five normal Ole Miss female outfits (not exactly feminine or masculine specific).
We wanted to learn the actual percentage of Ole Miss Students that wear the outfits presented in the survey and see if the frequency perceptions match the actual clothing occurrences.

Psy 392: Experimental Social Psychology
6 outfits were considered masculine
3 outfits were considered feminine
1 outfit was considered uni-gender
[remember that 5 outfits were known to be worn by females on campus, and 5 outfits were known to be worn by males on campus]
Male % - Female %= frequencies each outfit was worn
total wearing each outfit= Male %, female %
The lower the percent the less common it was seen and the higher the percent the more common it was seen
- masculine + feminine
women wore outfit 5(viewed as feminine) the most = 36.05%
the ‘none of the listed’ option also known as outfit 11(not defined) was the 2nd most common= 21.05% 3rd most common was outfit 9(viewed as feminine) =12.9%
Men wore outfit 6(viewed as masculine) the most = 23.44%
‘none of the listed’ option also known as outfit 11(not defined) was the 2nd = 20.83%
3rd most common was outfit 2(also viewed as masculine)= 16.67%
