Women's reactions to dominant and Agreeable men: how are initial judgements of attraction affected by peer discussion
MetadataShow full item record
This study examined the role of social influence in females' judgments of dominant and Agreeable males' dating desirability. Three hundred and sixty participants viewed one of four videotape segments that featured an interaction between two males in which the behavior of one male was manipulated to display dominant and/or Agreeable characteristics. Participants individually rated the dating desirability of the "Target male" before and after completing the same ratings as a group. Analyses revealed evidence for a social influence effect, however, videotape segments were not qualified by time. That is, the ratings of each condition at Time 2 did not change differently as predicted. Results are discussed in terms of their implications for further studies this area.
