This is a follow-up to a study concerning priming with "scrambled sentences" containing men expressing anger, contempt and disgust, and its effects on modern and classical racial prejudice and homonegativity.

This triggered the main hypothesis in the current study: if female names are used in the "scrambled sentences", females ought to decrease and males to increase their prejudice. No support was found for this hypothesis. However, men and participants in the later study expressed significantly higher overall prejudice. Further, due to great average age differences between the two studies correlations were tested with age and prejudice... (More)
