Masculinity, Femininity, and Self-Esteem: A Multitrait-Multimethod Analysis.
Whitley, Bernard E., Jr.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v18 n7-8 p419-31 Apr 1988
A multitrait-multimethod matrix analysis indicated the following: (1) trait and behavior measures of masculinity and femininity showed little convergence; (2) trait masculinity did not meet the criteria for discrimination from self-esteem; and (3) trait masculinity was more strongly correlated with self-esteem than was behavior masculinity. Results were stronger for women than for men. (FMW)
