Prejudice Toward Women: Some Personality Correlates.
Goldberg, Philip A.
This research sought to determine what personality characteristics are associated with prejudice toward women, and given the reality of such characteristics, what is the functional, personal value of this prejudice. This paper reports on the results of a series of correlational studies intended to answer these questions using a variety of psychometric devices with a variety of subject population. The devices include the California F Scale, the Goldberg Misogyny Test, a Sex-Role Stereotype Questionnaire, the Minnesota, Multiphasic Personality Inventory, the Rotter Incomplete Sentence Blank, and the Berger Self-Esteem Scale. Research conducted does reveal some personality differences which exist between high and low misogynous subjects; however, the list of variables that did not discriminate significantly between high and low misogynous subjects is much lengthier than the list of variables that did discriminate. The author concludes that prejudice toward women is culturally fixed and an almost universal attitude and, as such, final explanations of the phenomenon are not profitably to be looked for at the level of individual psychology. References are included. (Author/SES)
