Findings&Conclusions - 10 core studies

Most feared animals (MS's) = rat (2.08), jellyfish (1.81) & spider (1.64) Furthest away from animal = rat (3.90), cockroach (3.23) & jellyfish (2.95) Mean ratings show participants were disproportionately more fearful of rats more than other animals. Rats perceived as more harmful despite B-L&M's attempt to remove perceived harmfulness from the questionnaire had failed.
Gender differences include females less likely to approach or pick up 10 animals - similar diffs found in fear ratings. Men in G1 had rated themselves less fearful than women h/e when animals were ranked in order of nearness - correlation between M&F=0.96 Shows that men and women feared the same animals in the same order but men claimed to be less afraid.
Correlation matrix shows the speediness & sudden movement of the animals were highly correlated (r=+.95) & correlation between nearness & sudden movement = +.05 h/e when effect of ugliness removed, this rose to +.61 Concludes that all four ratings of perceptual characteristics are related to both fear and nearness.
