Reevy, Gretchen M.; Maslach, Christina
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v44 n7-8 p437-59 Apr 2001
Surveyed male and female adults to test several hypotheses about the relationship between sex, gender, personality, and social support. Overall, gender, but not sex, significantly correlated with patterns of social support. Femininity in both sexes associated with seeking and receiving emotional support, and with seeking and receiving support from women. Masculinity in both sexes related only to receiving tangible support. (SM)
