Annual Meeting of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) edition:14 location:New Orleans, LA, USA date:17-19 January 2013
Revealing that laypeople are unaware of the comparative nature of human judgment, participants endorsed noncomparative
self-descriptions more than comparative ones, agreed more with statements describing men and women
independently than with gender comparisons, and judged individuals who described men and women non-comparatively
more favorably than individuals who explicitly compared genders.
