Abstract

Considers whether inventories devised to tap general sex stereotypes should be used as individual personality measures. Alternative forms of cognitive structures that link sex, other person features, and behavioral rules are described and hypothesized to have sex-differentiating effects on behavior. Problems created by the persistent use of indicators of adaptation and mental health as criterion variables in research on sex identity and sex roles are discussed.
