Communicator Style and Social Style: Similarities and Differences Between the Sexes
Date of Original Version
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.
