Western Psychological Association Conference 2017

I worked with Prof. Paul Zarnoth and two other students to study gender, confidence, and social influence. We administered personality assessments to over 60 undergraduate participants and consolidated that data to be analyzed with statistical software. We found a “confidence gap” female participants when answering quantitative questions in mixed-sex pairs. We presented these findings in a poster session at the 97th Annual Western Psychological Association conference in Sacramento, California. With a new research team, I was selected to continue to expand this research project in the coming year.
