Sandra is shown a series of ambiguous facial images while cuddling a soft, fluffy stuffed animal. She rates 17 of the 20 ambiguous images as depicting females, despite the fact only 10 were females. What influenced Sandra's judgments?

▸ Sandra was primed for "softness" by her physical contact with the stuffed animal, and the feeling of softness has been associated with females.

▸ Sandra is female, and research has shown females are more biased toward seeing their own gender in ambiguous stimuli.

▸ The stuffed animal made Sandra feel relaxed and a bias toward females is more likely when a person is relaxed.

▸ Sandra assumed that more females than males like stuffed animals; therefore, the faces probably related to what she was holding.
