Undergraduate Psychology Research Methods Journal


This experiment intended to study how college students use racism and stereotyping in judging new people as well as how influential these assumptions can be. It will also examine whether women are more likely than men to use stereotypes as a basis for their opinion and whether the severity of the stereotype has anything to do with the amount of influence it has on a person’s judgment. Participants will be given a questionnaire regarding demographics and their personal opinions on racism and stereotyping as well as a short scenario with questions regarding their reaction to what they read. The study found significance regarding each of the hypotheses.
