The sample sizes and constructs were as follows: f Wilford Hall Medical Center : 30 people - 19 (F) 11 (M) University of the Incarnate Word : 19 people - 9 (F) 10 (M) University of Texas at San Antonio: 32 people - 11 (F) 21 (M) 3 The test subjects were all presented with the same scenario, given the...
