Presentation, Analysis and Interpretation of Data

 

This chapter provided the gathered data and the researcher’s analysis and interpretation of the results of the distributed surveys. The data were presented in a clear and concise form, most which used graphs and tables.

Out of the 80 surveys distributed to different sections of second year preparatory dentistry students, 70 surveys were completed and the remaining 10 were missing, presumably lost, forgotten, and/or unreturned. Most of the respondents preferred not to write their name and remain anonymous.

 

Gender: 90% were female respondents and 10 % were male respondents.

 

Age: The samples of 70 respondents were between 17- 18 years old. Most of them consisted of 18 years old (90%) and 10 % were 17 years old.

 

Question 1: I am familiar with the term “metrosexual”.

            Out of 70 respondents 33.82% agreed, 16.18% strongly agreed, 23.53% disagreed and 26.47% strongly disagreed that they are familiar with the term “metrosexual”. Combining the percentages, the ratio of the respondents was 50:50 on both affirmative and negative side. The result can confirm that there are still many people who were unfamiliar with the term metrosexual.

 

Question 2: Metrosexuals are gay.

            Out of 70 respondents 38.88% agreed, 4.41% strongly agreed, 54.41% disagreed and 10.29% strongly disagreed that metrosexuals are gay. Combining the percentages, more than half of the respondents negate the statement “Metrosexuals are gay.” Due to the definition that the researchers gave about what metrosexual is, the respondents had a clear notion of the characteristics of a metrosexual and being a gay is different from being a metrosexual.

 

Question 3: Metrosexuals are fashion style sensitive.

Out of 70 respondents 48.53% agreed, 38.21% strongly agreed, 8.82% disagreed and 4.41% strongly disagreed that metrosexuals are fashion style sensitive. Combining the percentages, more than half of the respondents affirmed that metrosexuals are fashion style sensitive. According to the study of Shim, et al., they found that males with the greatest body satisfaction and clothing attitudes appeared to have the most positive clothing and shopping behavior. Males with negative clothing attitudes and low body satisfaction were found to be the opposite with low interest in apparel shopping. Therefore, being fashionable is one of the factors of being a metrosexual.

 

Question 4: Men who wear trendy clothes are gay.

Combining the percentages, more than half of the respondents affirms that metrosexuals are indeed, mirror-obsessed people. One of the characteristics of metrosexuality is being vain about how they look. Therefore, it cannot be said that these metrosexuals are not careful with how they look and are viewed by the people around them.

For the foreign artists, Zac Efron ranked first, he reached the peak of his career when he starred in the Disney Movie “High School Musical 1, 2 & 3” and he also starred in the movie “17 Again” in which we saw how he fashionably wore his clothes.

 

Survey Helpfulness

92.86% of the respondents felt that the questionnaire was helpful in understanding what a metrosexual is, while only 7.14% disagreed. The majority affirmed that the survey has been helpful as a means of understanding what metrosexuality is.

The minority of the respondents still did not understand the real essence of metrosexuality after taking the survey, but their perceptions are all on the right track. The total perceptions of the respondents, which were derived from the meaning of metrosexuality that we gave, led the researchers to assume that the respondents were merely uninformed about the coined term metrosexual, but they knew who a metrosexual is, how they act and how they are.
