professionals' higher regard for feminine treatment goals
than females. Males may now find feminine characteristics
more acceptable than do females who have spent years either
asserting or denying such desires.
Of 45 subjects who knew the hypothesis, 80% thought
sex biases would be found; 11% did not; and 9% did not know.
Both gender of patient and gender of mental health profes-
sional were found to be predictive, i.e., more subjects in
the female patient X not salient condition guessed the
study's goals correctly and more male subjects in the male X
salient condition made incorrect guesses. These chance find-
ings might indicate a sexist belief that a female, within
the context of psychological research, is likely to be
associated with feminist issues. The investigator suggests
that, in future research, a subjective measure may be more
sensitive than the objective measures used in this study.
