1. Labbree, Brandon, 1991-. Accuracy of gender and ethnic labels and personality perception as moderated by prejudice.

Degree: MA, Psychology, 2016, Rutgers University

Prejudice has been of great interest to the field of psychology since near its creation, but little research has been done to examine the role of individuals' prejudice on the accuracy of their judgment of others. In this study, participants read eight short self-descriptions written by undergraduate students in a previous study. The self-descriptions were labeled as having been written by undergraduate students belonging to different gender and ethnic groups. Participants then rated the personality of the authors on a series of traits. Each participant was shown two self-descriptions that were accurate in both their gender labels and ethnicity labels, two self-descriptions that were labeled with accurate gender and inaccurate ethnicity labels, two self-descriptions that were labeled with inaccurate gender labels and accurate ethnicity labels, and two self-descriptions with inaccurate gender labels and inaccurate ethnicity labels. The participants completed self-report measures of gender, racial, and general prejudice levels, as well as self-rated personality. Accuracy was assessed through the strength of intraclass correlations (ICC) between the participants' ratings and the self-reported profiles of the authors. Upon analysis of the data, the author failed to find support for the hypotheses. There appears to be no effect of having accurate gender labels or accurate ethnicity labels on personality ratings. Prejudice was not found to moderate this relationship. Advisors/Committee Members: Chan, Wayne (chair), August, Kristin J (internal member), Nave, Christopher S (internal member).
