Title: Failure Influences How Men View Their Bodies
Author: Mills, Jennifer
D'Alfonso, Sante R.
Identifier: 00041
Abstract: When men fail, they feel bad about their general appearance and physical ability – but when they fail to a woman, men see themselves as less muscular. Men view their masculinity through the amount of muscle they have. The way women and men view their bodies is susceptible to social influence.
