Abstract [sv]

I studier av igenkänning av ansikten har egengruppseffekter (own-group bias) kunnat framkallas utifrån indelning av deltagarna i påhittade personlighetskategorier. Denna studies syfte var att undersöka om egengruppseffekter på liknande sätt kunde framkallas på ålders- samt attraktivitetsbedömning av röster. Totalt 38 deltagare fick utföra ett falskt personlighetstest i syfte att dela in dem i två grupper: röd och grön. Därefter presenterades 36 röstprover ett i taget med en röd eller grön bakgrundsfärg på datorskärmen, medan deltagarna skattade talarens ålder samt röstens attraktivitet. Resultatet visade ingen effekt av indelning i personlighetskategorier. Sammanfattningsvis var indelning av lyssnarna i påhittade personlighetskategorier inte tillräckligt för att framkalla en egengruppseffekt på ålders- samt attraktivitetsskattning av rösterna. 

Abstract [en]

Own-group bias on age and attractiveness estimation of voices.

Own-group bias elicited from categorization of subjects into arbitrary personality categories has been found on recognition of faces. The purpose of the present study was to examine if an own-group bias in a similar way could be elicited on age and attractiveness estimations of voices. A bogus personality test was completed by 38 participants in order to categorize them into two groups: red and green. Then 36 voice samples was presented one at a time along with a red or green background on the computer screen, and the subjects’ task was to estimate the age of the speaker and the attractiveness of the voice. The results showed no effects of color categorization. To conclude, the categorization of subjects into arbitrary personality categories was not enough to elicit an own-group bias on age and attractiveness estimation of voices.
