Hodgson, James W.; Fischer, Judith L.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v8 n1 p37-50 Mar 1979
College males and females were given measures of identity status, intimacy status, and self-esteem. Males were found to focus on intrapersonal aspects of identity, females on interpersonal aspects. The pursuit of various identity development pathways affected self-esteem differentially each sex. Sex differences in intimacy were also found. (Author/RD)
