Sex Differences of Gender Category Representation in Implicit Association Test

Abstract

This study conducted two experiments using implicit association test (IAT) to explore the sex difference of implicit representation for gender category. In Experiment 1, the manipulated variable was the attribute preference of gender category. The difference of IAT score for the attribute preference was obtained between female participants and male participants. The IAT score of female participants was larger than for male participants. In Experiment 2, the manipulated variable was the attribute typicality of gender category. The difference of IAT score for attribute typicality revealed no sex difference. These results were discussed from a point of view of dynamic representation of gender category in implicit level.
