How would an experiment change if a variable for the introspection were gender? Do you think that men and women differ in introspection? Why is it important that we are aware of both Thitchener and Wudt’s approach to introspection?
In my opinion, gender would not yield any significant differences in introspection. Introspection is the act of becoming aware of one’s conscious mental processes and reporting its contents. In this case, being a man or woman would not have any role to play in the perception and communication of mental phenomenon.
Wudnt is often regarded as the father of experimental psychology and was among the first to study the structure of the mind using introspection, to provide an explanation of different mental processes synthesise to function as a whole. Titchner was a student of Wundt, but unlike Wundt, he focused much more on the individual aspects of the mind. Although the work of Titchner has taken precedence over that of Wundt, it is important to understand how these approaches differ from each other in order to build upon more robust ones.
