Does Early Sex Typing Result from Children's Attempts to Match Their Behavior to Sex Role Stereotypes?
Perry, David G.; And Others
Child Development, v55 n6 p2114-21 Dec 1984
When two-, three-, four-, and five-year-olds were tested for knowledge of sex role stereotypes and preferences for sex-typed activities, boys' stereotype acquisition lagged behind preference development. Girls' data were ambiguous. Boys displayed equally strong tendencies to endorse same-sex activities; girls displayed a stronger tendency to reject cross-sex behavior than to endorse same-sex behavior. (Author/RH)
