Mapping Sex Group Stereotypes of Elementary and High School Students.
Parish, Thomas S.; Bryant, William T.
This study investigated the sex group stereotypes of elementary and high school-age youths. A total of 60 males and 60 females evaluated "boys" and "girls" on a semantic differential-type scale. The results indicated that younger members of both sexes were more positive about their own sex and more negative about the opposite sex than were their older counterparts. In addition, adolescent males, but not adolescent females, adopted more favorable evaluations of the opposite sex over their own sex group. Possible explanations are offered to account for these findings. (Author)
