Abstract:

This study compared 22 women and 21 men living in single-family dwellings with 21 men and 23 women living in high-rise apartment buildings in terms of frequency of interaction with neighbors and degree of cognitive complexity shown in characterizing them. The results indicated that (a)frequency of interaction with one's neighbors correlates (r = 0.46) with cognitive complexity in construing their behavior, (b) people living in single-family houses both interact more frequently with their neighbors and describe them more complexly than do people living in apartment buildings, and (c) across both housing conditions, women interact more with neighbors and describe them more complexly than do men.
