Inferred Adult Personality as a Function of Sex and Sex-Role Behavior in Childhood.
Gilbert, Steven J.; Stephan, Lin
Social Behavior and Personality, v12 n1 p23-27 1984
Conducted two studies in which subjects (N=345) read descriptions of stereotypic behavior displayed by a seven-year-old boy or girl and predicted adult personality attributes. Results showed that irrespective of sex, the feminine child was predicted to be happier, more mature, less self-centered, and more expressive. (LLL)
