Dataset for research study "Gender Stereotypes in Impression Formation." Participants were randomly assigned to one of three conditions: stereotype-contradicting, stereotype-confirming, and neutral. All groups completed a mental imagery task that either contradicted, confirmed, or was neutral to gender stereotypes about physicians. The participants then completed a first impressions task, in which they chose between headshots of a man and a woman and decided who was most likely to be the physician. Participants’ judgements and response latency were recorded. Comparisons were made between the responses and response latency both across age and within the conditions across groups, as well as overall responses and response latency among the three groups. In addition, the descriptive data from the mental imagery task were analyzed.
