A fifth study provided longitudinal data from children tested 4 times from age 11 to 13 years. Data supported conceptual distinctions among individual's gender attitudes toward others, feminine self, and masculine self, and revealed differences across domains. The self- other relation differed by sex of participant. (Author/KB)
