Abstract

In this article we report the results of two studies that used a new sex role instrument, the Sex-Rep. The Sex-Rep uses ideographically elicited sex role constructs, rather than stereotypes, to determine classification. Results from the first study indicated that personal feminine constructs may be healthier than feminine stereotypes in some contexts. The second study showed that the Sex-Rep discriminates gender as well as does the Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI) and that these two instruments are nonredundant. Results also indicated that the apparent positive relation between masculinity and adjustment may be a measurement artifact. The different purposes of the Sex-Rep and the BSRI are discussed.
