Gender and Sex-Role Stereotypes in Scales of Death Concern.
Robbins, Rosemary A.
Consistent with the literature, 67 undergraduate females in the present study reported significantly more death anxiety on Templer's Death Anxiety Scale and the Collett Lester Fear of Death of Others and Dying of Self scales than did 25 undergraduate males. Regression analyses revealed that when Bem's Masculinity and Femininity Scales were included in standard regression, gender no longer made a significant contribution in predicting scores on Templer's scale or the Collett-Lester Fear of Death of Self and Fear of Dying of Self. Thus when the subjects contemplated their own deaths, gender differences in death anxiety could be accounted for by a "feminine" sex role orientation. (Twelve references and one table are included.)
