College Students' Self-Estimated and Actual Knowledge of Gender Traditional and Nontraditional Occupations: A Replication and Extension.
Yanico, Barbara J.; Hardin, Susan I.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v28 n3 p229-40 Jun 1986
Investigated students' information about gender traditional and nontraditional occupations and the relationship of students' stereotyping of occupations to predicted and actual knowledge. There was little relationship between actual and predicted scores for either sex. However, men's errors did not relate to occupational type, while women overestimated their scores on traditional occupations and underestimated on nontraditional ones. (Author/BL)
