PERSONALITY ATTRIBUTES ASSOCIATED WITH VARIOUS MECHANISMS OF MASCULINE IDENTIFICATION.
INSELBERG, RACHEL M.; AND OTHERS
THE PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF BOYS WHOSE MASCULINE IDENTIFICATION IS BASED ON ONE OF THREE MECHANISMS--FATHER'S NURTURANCE, FATHER'S PUNITIVENESS, OR FATHER'S NURTURANCE TOGETHER WITH HIS PUNITIVENESS WERE COMPARED. BOYS WITH VARYING MASCULINITY RATINGS WERE COMPARED ON THEIR PERCEPTION OF THE DEGREE OF PARENTAL NURTURANCE OR PUNITIVENESS, AND THEIR PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS, REPUTATIONS, AND SELF-CONCEPTS. BOYS WITH A MEAN AGE OF 67 MONTHS WERE ADMINISTERED THE IT SCALE FOR CHILDREN, THE CALIFORNIA TEST OF PERSONALITY, A TEST FOR ANXIETY REACTIONS, A TEST FOR SELF-CONCEPT AND PEER EVALUATION, AND A TEST FOR THE PERCEPTION OF PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIPS. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND IN THE PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF BOYS IN THE HIGH MASCULINITY RANGE WHO PERCEIVED THEIR FATHER AS EITHER NURTURANT OR PUNITIVE. PERSONALITY MECHANISMS OF HIGH MASCULINITY BOYS SEEM TO DEVELOP INDEPENDENTLY OF THE IDENTIFICATION MECHANISMS. THE EXISTENCE OF DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BOYS IN THE HIGH, LOW, AND MIDDLE RANGES OF MASCULINITY WITH RESPECT TO THEIR PERCEPTION OF THE DEGREE OF PARENTS' PUNITIVENESS OR NURTURANCE WAS SUPPORTED BY THE DATA. LOW MASCULINITY BOYS SCORED LOWER THAN THE OTHER GROUPS IN THE PARENT NURTURANCE CATEGORIES. PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS, REPUTATIONS, AND SELF-CONCEPTS OF BOYS IN THE THREE RANGES OF MASCULINITY VARIED. (PS)
