SEX DIFFERENCES IN SELF-REPORTED RIGHT-LEFT CONFUSION BY ADULTS: A ROLE FOR SOCIAL DESIRABILITY?
Abstract:Self-reports of difficulty in discriminating right from left (R/L), a measure of the influence of social desirability, and motor performance on a discrimination task (a map test) were compared in males and females. Significantly more females reported some degree of R/L confusion and there was a significant negative correlation between females' self-reports and social desirability scores. No such relationship was found for men's scores and no sex differences were evident during performance on the motor task.
