Cann, Arnie; Haight, Jeanne M.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v9 n7 p767-73 Jul 1983
Children were asked to choose either a male or female doll in response to a question as to which would be better at an occupation. Results showed that children of all ages have clear sex-typed expectations concerning occupational competence, but that with increasing age there is an increasing adherence to these stereotypes.
