ABSTRACT

This study aimed to examine how emotional recognition from voices differs in individuals with autistic traits. A total of 1,016 male and female college students who completed surveys measuring autistic traits were included. The Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ) and the Empathy Quotient (EQ) were administered to measure autistic traits. Participants were divided into upper and lower groups, according to their autistic traits. A total of 34 (male=16, female=18) participants, including 16 from the upper group and 18 from the lower group, were selected. Vocal stimuli, which can be divided into two types, were used to measure auditory emotion recognition. Stimulus 1, which was created by the researcher, is used to examine complex emotions, and stimulus 2 is used to measure both basic and complex emotions. There were no significant differences in the ability to recognize basic emotions among the groups. However, the ability to recognize complex emotions was statistically significant depending on whether context was provided or not. This study’s clinical implications, limitations, and suggestions for future research are discussed.
