Abstract

Currently there is much interest in the research literature concerning sex differences for communicator style. This study investigated differences between males’ and females’ self-perceptions on Norton’s (1983) Communicator Style Construct and on the Social Style Profile (Buchholz, Lash brook & Wenberg, 1976). Forty-three males and 42 females completed these measures as volunteers in a classroom setting. The results indicated that males’ and females’ self-report responses do not differ significantly across these measures. An exploratory cluster analysis of communicator style provided a heuristic for future research. © 1988, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
