WOW. That whole "women suck at spacial tasks" has been such an ingrained thing for so long that I learned it as a totally non-controversial "men have larger visual centers, women have larger corpus collosums, we've got the cadaver data to prove it" factoid in Psych 101. This is the first time I've heard about priming.

Makes me wonder whether priming has any effect on color perception. In my brief and cursory Google search, it looks like a whole bunch of "nope, women are just superior" pop-sci crap.
