Autonomy and Intimacy Development in College Students: Sex Differences and Predictors.
Greeley, Ann T.; Tinsley, Howard E. A.
Journal of College Student Development, v29 n6 p512-20 Nov 1988
Examined extent to which developmental theories of Erikson, Chickering, and Gilligan explain sex differences in autonomy and intimacy development in college students. Results from 441 college students suggest that both Gilligan's and Chickering's theories contribute to understanding of autonomy and intimacy development. Intimacy was strongest predictor of autonomy; intimacy was predicted by autonomy, sex-role attitudes, and gender. (Author/NB)
