Abstract:

This study examines the effects of race, setting and type of approach upon interpersonal distance preferences among black and white female undergraduate students. Subjects were tested two at a time in same-race pairs, using both direct and indirect measures in corner and center settings as each subject approached and was approached by her partner, Direct measures showed interpersonal distance to be greater in the corner than in the center setting and greater when subjects were approached by than when approaching their partner, but there was no significant effect for race of subject. Indirect measures showed no effects. Interactions showed the effects of type of approach depended to some extent upon both race and setting.
