▼ Findings are presented from a correlational analysis between the extent of sex-typing in men's perceptions of themselves and the extent to which the same men sex-type women (Hypothesis One). Further, correlational findings between the extent of sex-typed self-assessment in men and the extent of the same men's preferences for a sex-typed woman candidate are presented (Hypothesis Two). Eighty college students were used in the current study, 34 Georgetown College men and 46 Xavier University men. Measures of sex-typed self-perception and sex-typed perception of women in general were gathered using the Bem Sex-Role Inventory. Findings suggest a relationship between sex-typed self-perception and sex-typed perception of women in general, but no relationship between sex-typed self-perceptions and the preference for a sex-typed woman candidate. Results are discussed in relation to findings on both hypotheses.

▼ This study was researched to study the effects of three variables on a search type examination. The basic problem was to study the effect of male, female populations, using two different answer forms on a search test measuring vigilance decrement over time. The answer forms were different in respect to color, on being all red and the other red and blue. The search test was multiple-choice in nature, with the answers being transferred to a computer-scored answer form. The results showed significance over time of the search test. The results also showed fewer completions and more errors at the beginning of the tests and at the end of the test more completions and more errors. Greater increases in completions occurred over time using the experimental form in comparison with the control answer form. Overall, there were no significant differences between the different colored answer forms and there were no significant sex differences.
