THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NEUROTICISM AND THE PERCEIVED SOCIAL DESIRABILITY OF FEMININE CHARACTERISTICS AMONG 16–19-YEAR-OLD FEMALES
Abstract:A sample of 236 16- to 19-year-old women completed the Eysenck neuroticism scale (Eysenck, Eysenck, & Barrett, 1985) and rated their perceptions of how desirable British society in general considers the items of the Bem scale of femininity for men and for women. The data demonstrate a relationship between neuroticism and the tendency to emphasise greater differentiation between the cultural stereotypes of men and women.
