Research Resources

NOTE: All documents here are available free for research use, but I ask two things: (1) actually read the papers from which they come, (2) use the appropriate citation provided as your source, even if you are going to adapt these for your own uses.

Some of the documents are long so please scroll down within each one. To see what other resources I’ve put, scroll down the whole screen.

Experimental Stimuli:

These are job descriptions that we used both in hiring experiments (participants match job applicants from their resumes with job descriptions) and in self-selection experiments in which participants chose between matched jobs in the same profession to test how much they prefer hierarchy-enhancing or hierarchy-attenuating jobs. The ones shown here are from

Pratto, F., & Espinoza, P. (2001). Gender, ethnicity, and power. Journal of Social Issues, 57, 763-780.

but they are just modified for region of the country from the ones used in

Pratto, F., Stallworth, L. M., Sidanius, J., & Siers, B. (1997). The gender gap in occupational role attainment: A social dominance approach. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 72, 37-53.
