The purpose of this study is to examine trustworthiness perception in female or male-dominated occupations. The current study is a 2x2 between-subjects design. The participants will be recruited from psychology classes at Ohio Northern University. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of four conditions, photos of males in male-dominated occupations, males in female-dominated occupations, females in female-dominated occupations, or females in male-dominated occupations. Perceived trustworthiness will be reported using a self-report measure. The first hypothesis is that women will be rated as more trustworthy than men. The second hypothesis is that individuals in male-dominated fields will be rated as more trustworthy than individuals in female-dominated fields. The third hypothesis is that men working in male-dominated occupations will be rated as the most trustworthy.
