Perception of Aggressiveness of Communicative Information Depending on a Speaker's Gender

Anastasia A. Kuzminykh and Sergey N. Enikolopov
Abstract—Despite the great attention to the study of aggression in general, today we can see surprisingly small amount of research on the perception of aggression. Current work was inspired by the results of our previous study about prevailing perceptions of masculine and feminine aggression that showed that in general men are believed to be more aggressive, but also both for men and for women there is a tendency to consider their own aggressiveness as more high than it is in perception of the opposite gender and in general women evaluate both genders as more aggressive than men do. We were interested whether these beliefs about male and female aggressiveness will find reflection in the direct perception of communicative information. We created a computer program, consisting of the page for demographic information and the experimental part - a set of 20 aggressive and 16 non-aggressive audio phrases presented in male and female voices. It has been shown that women in general evaluate phrases as more negative, than men do, but non-aggressive phrases are perceived by women as more friendly when they are said in male voice.

Index Terms—Aggression, aggressiveness, gender differences, perception.
