A study indicated that (1) male and female androgynous and cross-sexed college students were more tolerant of ambiguity than sex-typed subjects and cognitively more complex than undifferentiated subjects; (2) cross-sexed subjects were cognitively more complex than sex-typed subjects; and (3) cognitive complexity and intolerance for ambiguity were negatively correlated.
