In two testing sessions 1-week apart, males provided a saliva sample, analyzed for testosterone levels, and completed a sex-categorization task. Differences in testosterone levels between testing sessions were significantly correlated with differences in categorization times, but for female targets only. These findings are considered in terms of adaptive person construal.
