Abstract

This study investigated how individuals rate men, women, and self on common personality characteristics when death is made salient. Results indicated a significant effect of death on women’s ratings but not men’s. Under the death prompt, women considered themselves significantly more judgmental, moody, materialistic, easily embarrassed, and rated their own personalities as adhering significantly more to negative female trait stereotypes.
