We also identify and expand interventions from three different research traditions designed to deter bias, and propose ways of applying them to block double standards in the assessment of equivalent performances. The interventions involve (1) increasing assessor’s accountability, (2) increasing similarity across the performers, and (3) disrupting the often taken-for-granted association between higher status and good performance – as well as the corresponding link between lower status and poor pe...

ABSTRACTObjectification occurs when people are seen and treated similarly to things. Research on this topic has been dominated by an interest in the content of impressions people form of targets, but much less is known about the processes involved in the objectification of others. To fill this gap, this paper reviews a recent line of research that investigates the cognitive objectification of others (i.e., the processes – early visual processing, attention and memory – through which a person is ...

Our focus is on the agent and how self-regulatory resources influence sexual objectification. Consistent with prior evidence, we reasoned that people have a well-learned automatic response to objectify sexualized women, and as such, w...

The field of health practices is one in which broader cultural ideologies are expressed as well as one subjected to social regulations legitimized through widely valued and shared standards taken from mundane perceptions. In this research, we investigated how cultural ideologies, here operationalized as social norms, influence people’s perceptions of the state of health and health behavior of others. These perceptions were investigated in two independent studies using impression-management tasks...

Femme, objets et animaux: differencier l’objectivation basee sur le sexe et la beauteLes philosophes, les theoriciens feministes et les psychologues s’accordent a considerer l’objectivation comme un deni d’humanite ; toutefois, la nature de cette deshumanisation est ambigue. Les travaux existants suggerent que les femmes objectivees sont associees cognitivement a des objets ainsi qu’a des animaux, mais on a accorde peu d’attention a ce que le terme objectivation recouvre reellement. Le concept e...
