Abstract: The influence of sex, ethnicity, gender traits and contexts on ambulatory cardiovascular responses was examined in Singaporean undergraduates. Three-way interactions between sex, gender traits and context on physiological responses confirm that sex and gender significantly influenced responses to stress with these effects moderated by context. Sex, trait agency and context influenced diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and heart rate (HR). At home, trait agency was unrelated to DBP in men although it was positively related to DBP in women. Trait agency was negatively related to HR in men where this relationship was stronger at school/work compared to home. Sex, trait communion and context influenced also HR. In females, trait communion had a negative effect on HR; this relationship was stronger at school/work than home. In males, trait communion was unrelated to HR. The results suggest that sex and gender traits differentially influence the appraisal of contexts between men and women.
