1. These researches investigated the stereotyped affective-social responses of adult male and female rhesus monkeys to human observers and to a situation designed to produce conflict. 2. In the first experiment threat responses to the human observer were scored on a four point scale by three observers working independently. Each observer obtained significantly more frequent and intense threat reactions from female than from male subjects. 3. In a second experiment, food was presented in proximity to an aversive stimulus and records were obtained of threat reactions, lipsmacking, fear grimaces, and food acceptance. Females displayed significantly more threat responses and fear grimaces. Differences between sexes in lipsmacking and food acceptance were in the expected direction, but were not statistically significant.
