Does skin color make a difference?
I am trying to figure out if the color of the Barbie's skin affects which Barbie people think is prettier.
I think people will choose the white Barbie because they are used to seeing Barbies that are white.
I am going to go out and ask people which Barbie they think is prettier. I am going to ask 15 adults then switch the dresses and ask another 15 adults. I will then do the same with kids.
I asked 15 adults the question, "Which Barbie do you think is prettier?" I first asked that question when the blue dress was on the black Barbie. Then I switched the dresses and asked 15 more adults. I did the same with kids.
I discovered that most grown-ups liked the lavender dress on the black or white barbie. On the other hand kids mostly liked the white Barbie. Only six kids liked the black Barbie.
