Participants were sorted into dysphoric and non-dysphoric groups according to scores on the DASS- DS.
As a function of the selection criteria, there was a significant main effect for dysphoric status (Mood) (F (1,41) = 92.2, p<001), with the dysphoric group scoring higher on the DASS-DS (Men: Mean = 14.21, SD = 4.15; Women: Mean = 16.78, SD = 7.61) than the non-dysphoric group (Men: Mean = 2.45, SD = 2.73; Women: Mean = 2.73, SD = 2.24).
Gender (male v female) and Mood (dysphoric v non-dysphoric) were between subject variables, and Cue Type (positive, negative & neutral) was a within-subject variable.
The gender dysphoric is a person who may be moving toward an identity as a transsexual, while simultaneously resisting the transformation.
Gender dysphoric individuals are also highly invested in transgender behavior.
Cross-dressers have significantly less investment in transgender behavior, as it is not a continuously present element in the individuals' life (as it is for the transsexual and perhaps the gender dysphoric).
