Gender Identity: A Multidimensional Analysis with Implications for Psychosocial Adjustment.
Egan, Susan K.; Perry, David G.
Developmental Psychology, v37 n4 p451-63 Jul 2001
Examined relations between components of gender identity and psychosocial adjustment in 182 fourth- through eighth- graders. Found that felt gender compatibility related positively to adjustment, whereas felt pressure and intergroup bias were negatively associated with adjustment. Results help identify sources of confusion in previous research, and suggest directions for future research. (Author/KB)
