ABSTRACT:
This study investigated the extent to which male boastfulness or female lack of confidence accounts for the differences in motor performance estimates between groups of high school boys and girls. Subjects were assigned to either a polygraph or a non-polygraph condition. The results indicate that male boastfulness is probably not the most plausible reason for explaining sex differences in estimates of performance on a motor task. Determines the extent to which male boastfulness or female lack of confidence accounts for the difference in motor performance estimates between groups of high school boys and girls. Uses experimental data (N = 60) and indicates that sex differences exist for performance estimates for a motor task perceived to be male in orientation but suggests that this may not have been the result of boastfulness among males. Concludes that female's lack of confidence may affect motor performance.
