Administered Bem Sex-Role Inventory to high school students, and asked how they wanted to be remembered. Found a gender role by remembrance preference interaction. Masculine subjects chose "athletic star" more than did feminine or androgynous subjects, who selected "most popular" and "leader in activities" more frequently.
