The Intrapsychic Nature of Androgyny: Integrating the Conscious and the Unconscious.
Roeder, Eugene P.
Social androgyny is explored from the perspective of intrapyschic processes. It was hypothesized that androgynous individuals would exhibit characteristics consistent with a more intrapsychic orientation. The purpose was twofold: to assess the ability of the Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI) as a measure of social androgyny, and to attempt to demonstrate that androgynous individuals are more oriented toward intrapsychic aspects of their personality. College student volunteers (N=330) completed the BSRI, Tuckman's Interpersonal Topical Inventory and an Intrapsychic Orientation Questionnaire. The results indicate that persons classified as androgynous by the BSRI exhibit characteristics consistent with hypothesized correlates of intrapsychic androgyny. (Author/BMW)
