Negative Cues: ANOVA was non-significant for negative cues indicating that the generality of responses to negative cue words did not differ between men and women or between dysphoric and non-dysphoric people.
The source of interaction was the higher generality of response to neutral cues by the dysphoric women relative to the non-dysphoric women and both groups of men.
Comparison of male responses: A one-way within-subject ANOVA for Cue Type indicated that there was no significant difference across Cue Types for dysphoric men (p>.
Comparison of female responses: A one-way ANOVA indicated a significant main effect for Cue Type for dysphoric women (F(2,7)= 21.
This study investigated the self-referential cognitive processes of dysphoric people and explored the possible impact of gender and cue type on responses to an AM task.
