It’S About Time: Sex Differences in Estimating Time For Shopping in Five Contexts

This research explores sex differences in time allocation and time estimation when consumers think about shopping for products in five different contexts: shopping for a gift, a pair of jeans, a computer, a leisure product, and a list of food staples. We found women reliably allocated more time for shopping for a computer, jeans, and a gift. Sex differences also emerged in the method used to estimate the time it would take to shop for a gift and a leisure product. This research contributes to understanding the role that time pressure plays in sex differences in shopping enjoyment.
