Gender-Related Self-Discrepancies and Bulimic Eating Behavior.
Klingenspor, Barbara
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v47 n1-2 p51-64 Jul 2002
Explored the link between development of bulimic eating behavior and suppression of masculine traits in adolescence. German high school students completed a sex role inventory. Among girls, higher risk of developing bulimia appeared to be caused by increasing discrepancies between actual and ideal self-concept on masculine-typed personality traits. For both sexes, gender-related self-discrepancies related to bulimic symptoms indirectly, via self-esteem and dieting. (SM)
