SEX-TYPING AND MEANS OF INFLUENCE IN MARRIAGE
Abstract:The relationship between masculinity, femininity, and androgyny on the one hand, and the use of different means of influence in marriage on the other, was investigated. Sixty married men and 60 married women served as subjects. It was found that androgynous husbands tended to use fewer last-resort, dependency and authoritative, and more give-up means of influence. Androgynous wives tended to use significantly less give-up, accommodative, dependency and authoritative means, than did other groups. It can be concluded that different sex-role types will also differ in the use of means of influence in marriage.
