Are There Gender Differences Between the Decision Process When Recognizing the Perpetrator? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Vårt syfte med studien var att undersöka om det fanns en skillnad mellan mänoch kvinnor i deras beslutsprocess (absoluta- eller relativa process) under envittneskonfrontation, samt att kontrollera om det fanns en skillnad mellan mänoch kvinnor till ett korrekt utpekande. Våra hypoteser var att 1) kvinnor i störreutsträckning skulle använda sig av svar som beskriver en absolut beslutsprocess,2) kvinnor skulle göra fler korrekta utpekanden vid vittneskonfrontationer och 3)det fanns ett samband mellan absoluta beslutsprocessen och ett korrektutpekande. Vi genomförde en enkätundersökning som publicerades på webbensom sammanlagt besvarades av 451 personer. I enlighet med vår hypotes visaderesultaten att kvinnor använder sig av absoluta beslutsprocesser i högreutsträckning och gjorde fler korrekta utpekande än män. Resultaten diskuteradesutifrån teori och tidigare forskning.

Abstract [en]

Our purpose of the study was to investigate whether there are differences betweenmen and women in their decision-making process (absolute identification orrelative judgment) during a witness confrontation, as well as to check whetherthere are differences between men and women in identification accuracy. Ourhypotheses were: 1) women would be more likely to use answers that describe anabsolute identification, 2) women would make more correct identification inwitness confrontations, 3) there would be an association between the absoluteidentification and the correct identification. We conducted an online survey,which was answered by 451 people. In accordance with our hypothesis, theresults showed that women made use of absolute identification to a greater extentand made more correct identification than men. The results discussed based ontheory and previous research.
