Abstract
Do individuals with highly internalized social gender roles implicitly favor their own biological gender group more than androgynous or undifferentiated individuals do? To determine this, two identical studies were conducted and compared. One in 2002 (N=83), a second in 2009 (N=82). In total 165 17-19 year-olds (78 women, 87 men) completed three tests: Bem's Sex-Role Inventory (BSRI), categorizing social gender roles and two tests on implicit attitude towards biological gender group – a pen-and-paper version of the Implicit Attitude Test (IAT) and a preferred seating arrangement test in a fictitious classroom (Westerlundh). Even though, separated, the three tests indicated valid and reliable results; the results between the tests did not... (More)
Do individuals with highly internalized social gender roles implicitly favor their own biological gender group more than androgynous or undifferentiated individuals do? To determine this, two identical studies were conducted and compared. One in 2002 (N=83), a second in 2009 (N=82). In total 165 17-19 year-olds (78 women, 87 men) completed three tests: Bem's Sex-Role Inventory (BSRI), categorizing social gender roles and two tests on implicit attitude towards biological gender group – a pen-and-paper version of the Implicit Attitude Test (IAT) and a preferred seating arrangement test in a fictitious classroom (Westerlundh). Even though, separated, the three tests indicated valid and reliable results; the results between the tests did not show any correlation. The IAT detected that women's in-group preference seems to be stronger than that of men. The BSRI study indicated a connection between gender and gender roles in 2002, but none in 2009. The seating arrangement test did not indicate any preferences held by women or men. No connection was found between a person's internalized social gender role and their implicit attitude toward gender in-group. Results are discussed.
Key words: gender, androgynous, undifferentiated, Bem's Sex-Role Index (BSRI), Implicit Association Test (IAT), implicit attitudes, explicit attitudes, preferred seating arrangement. (Less)
