ANDROGYNY AND OPENNESS TO EXPERIENCE IN A CHINESE POPULATION
Abstract:Androgyny and openness to experience were both investigated in a population of 100 Chinese people living in England. Androgyny was measured by the Bem scale, and openness to experience by the a scale developed by Coan. It was found that the androgynous subjects showed more openness to experience. However it was also noted that the scores for the Chinese subjects deviated from the US norms in a manner which suggested that the conceptualization of androgyny may vary both theoretically and empirically between cultures.
