The extent to which prejudicial views of both genders influence college students' clinical evaluations was investigated. Primarily White and working-class students listened to 1 of 4 audiotapes of either a male or a female actor with identical major or minor psychological problems. Participants selected 1 of 4 intervention levels (no intervention, workshops/seminars, counselor, or psychiatrist) for the actor and for themselves if they were to experience the actor's problems. The results indicated that both actor gender and participant gender influenced intervention choice. Participants, especially men, tended to select a higher intervention level for the actor than for themselves. These findings are congruent with the self-serving biases exhibited in therapeutic contexts and support the position that gender affects clinical decisions.
