Abstract
The aim of this study was to find female and male subtypes in Sweden and measure peoples’ perceptions of their competence and warmth. This was done through a qualitative survey that collected the subtypes, and a quantitative survey which measured opinions on the different subtypes. The results showed there was a significant difference in competence and warmth within female subtypes as well as male subtypes, indicating that people think there are different types of females and males. This could mean that if people were able to choose a gender subtype instead of general gender it will be possible to reduce gender stereotyping.
