Abstract

The main objective of this study is to investigate the gender differences in giving direction. The differences between gender are determined by the usage of left and right turns, the usage of landmarks and the time taken on giving directions. A total of 30 participants consisting of 15 males and 15 females were recruited from University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS). This study used direction-giving task that was inspired by Carol Lawton’s study in ‘Gender and Regional Differences in Spatial Referent Used in Direction Giving’. Independent-samples test was used to test the hypotheses respectfully. Findings from this study showed no significant differences in all three hypotheses tested which are there is a significant difference between gender and the usage of left and right terms, usage of landmarks terms and the time taken to explain route direction. All three hypothesis were tested and all were not supported.
