Description

Throughout the year, I have worked alongside Dr. Hoyt and Dr. Allison to research perceptions of heroes, leaders, and gender. We conducted a series of four studies that examined the implicit expectations individuals hold about heroes. Overall, we found that individuals view heroes as more communal than leaders. It was not that case that more females were assumed to be heroes, but rather that the label “hero” created a perception of communality.
