Abstract:

Certain sex differences in aptitudes have been consistently found by various researchers. Findings have suggested the importance of the level of aspiration of the individual subject as well as the significance of sex. The following study investigated some of the differences in a perceptual discrimination performance task due to: (1) sex and (2) level of aspiration of each group of subjects. It was found that the discrimination performance of females was greater than that of males; level of aspiration does affect both groups, but the female subjects to a greater degree, and, there is an interaction effect between femaleness, maleness, and aspiration level.
