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

Mentions: Among gay participants, a regression analysis revealed a marginally significant amount by direction interaction, β = .41, t(44) = 1.81, p = .08. As shown in Figure 5, the pattern differs from that observed for straight participants. Here, we found a significant difference between those with high amounts of SO ambivalence as a function of direction. Individuals who were more gay on the explicit measure of SO relative to the implicit measure spent significantly more time deliberating their SO, β = .43, t(44) = 3.27, p = .002. No differences were observed between those with a low amount of SO ambivalence as a function of the direction of ambivalence, β = −.14, t < 1.
