Borton and Alumni Co-Author Paper in Psychology Journal

Jennifer Borton

A paper co-authored by Associate Professor of Psychology Jennifer Borton was published in the March-April issue of The Journal of Social Psychology. “Does Suppressing the Thought of a Self-Relevant Stigma Affect Interpersonal Interaction?” was co-written with David Reiner ’05, Erica Vazquez ’08, Jessica Ruddiman ’09 and Stephanie Anglin ’10.

 

The paper presents the results of the authors’ examination of the effects a woman’s suppression of negative gender stereotypes has on her interaction with a male confederate. The researchers found that those who suppressed negative thoughts about women’s ability experienced less self-confidence and lower self-esteem, and were more nonverbally submissive during the interaction.
