Title: Impact of Gender on Negative Affectivity

Author: Ven. Kumbukandana Rewatha Thero & A. R. Kumaranayaka


The aim of this study was to examine whether there is a significant difference in the negative affectivity between Males and Females. The sample (N=89 where there were 44 males and 45 females) was chosen using the quota sampling method to represent four different districts in Sri Lanka. The negative affectivity was assessed using the Negative affectivity subscale of the Positive and Negative Affectivity Schedule (PANAS). The analysis of data was carried out using Parametric statistical procedures after the normality was established and the independent samples t tests revealed that there was no statistically significant difference (where t(87)=0.378, p=0.707 which is >0.05) between the negative affectivity scores of males (Mean= 21.25, SD =7.83)  and females (Mean=21.91, SD = 8.66).
