On Feeling Torn About One's Sexuality: The Effects of Explicit-Implicit Sexual Orientation Ambivalence.

Windsor-Shellard B, Haddock G - Pers Soc Psychol Bull (2014)

Bottom Line: The results revealed that participants with greater SO ambivalence took longer responding to explicit questions about their sexual preferences, an effect moderated by the direction of ambivalence.Study 2 replicated this effect using a different paradigm.Among straight participants, the response time results replicated the findings of Studies 1 and 2.

Study 2: The impact of the amount (separate lines) and direction (x axis) of SO ambivalence on time spent deliberating explicit questions on one’s sexuality.Note. SO = sexual orientation.

Mentions: Consistent with Study 1, a regression analysis revealed that greater SO ambivalence was (marginally) associated with longer deliberation in response to explicit questions about sexuality, β = .17, t(111) = 1.80, p = .08. This effect was once again qualified by the amount by direction interaction, β = −.26, t(111) = −1.81, p = .07 (see Figure 2). Like Study 1, when self-identified straight females reported an SO on the explicit measure that was less straight than that stipulated by the implicit measure, individuals with high SO ambivalence took longer to respond to direct sexuality questions compared with those with low SO ambivalence, β = .40, t(111) = 3.00, p = .003. However, for individuals who reported an SO on the explicit measure that was more straight than that stipulated by the implicit measure, the amount of ambivalence had no effect, β = .00, t < 1. Together, these findings replicate those obtained in Study 1.
