An Investigation of How People of Different Age, Sex, and Temperament Estimate the World

I Trofimova. Psychol Rep.

Abstract

Results of a study on 167 subjects demonstrated that the basic semantic structure of consciousness is associated with a person's temperament, age, and sex. Concrete particularities of estimations and structure of the semantic space depend upon these biologically based characteristics. The results suggest the presence of a phenomenon of "projection through capacities": when a person registers only those aspects of objects or situation that he can properly react to and deal with in their own behavior.
