Gender Study

After our initial examination as to whether people could identify emotion from a characters gait and emotional incidents, we started to wonder if gender had any affect on the results.

We have since examined our original data as well as run a second study specifically aimed at examining the possible influences of gender. During this second study, we examined whether the participants gender or the characters gender influenced how participants labelled the given scenes.

For this second study, we had participants label eight scenes. Four had a male character walking and four had a female character. Both characters were dressed similarly (jeans and a t-shirt - see below) and used the exact same animations for their walks. The results of this study are currently in submission for publication.
