Description

In the field of psychology, replication is immensely important. As aspiring psychologists, part of our responsibility is to fill in gaps and confirm new discoveries as genuine using this technique. The study we replicated is one that found a peculiar phenomenon: women tend to judge other women less favorably than men when they are attempting to accomplish something, but judge them the same when they have previously accomplished that same thing. Upon replication, we found that there was no statistically significant difference in how men or women judged either gender. Hence, the original study did not replicate successfully.
