Does Counselor Response to Occupational Choice Indicate Sex Stereotyping?
Price, Gary; And Others
This research was designed to assess female and male counselor sex-role stereotyping in their perceptions of the appropriateness of female and male students' occupational choices. The following variables were controlled in a six-way analysis of variance: sex of counselor, sex of student, occupational status, occupational stereotype, ability of student, and interest of student. No overt sex stereotyping was found. There were significant differences between the female and male counselors, female and male occupational stereotypes, high and low status occupations, high and low interests. Fifteen of the 57 interactions were significant. Scheffe post hoc comparisons were computed, and it was determined that counselors viewed the interest level of the student as the most important variable in rating the appropriateness of the occupational choice.
