Abstract

An impression, does not have to accurately assess personality characteristics, but it will inform future encounters. This study sought to investigate whether males and females perceive persons wearing glasses or hearing aids differently and whether their own experiences affected those judgments. Data were collected via online survey. Females rated the male model wearing glasses as more Reliable and Provocative. Males found the female model more Fashionable and Good-looking in glasses. No significant differences were computed when impressions were compared between participants who wore glasses and those who did not. Regarding impressions of persons wearing hearing aids, male and female participants were in agreement with their impressions, rating both the male and female control model more favorably on three of the factors.
