An Investigation of the Gender Stereotyped Thinking of Taiwanese Secondary School Boys and Girls

An Investigation of the Gender Stereotyped Thinking of Taiwanese Secondary School Boys and Girls In this study we investigated the gender stereotyped thinking of 1672 Taiwanese senior high students (779 boys, 893 girls). Participants completed a Chinese version of a gender stereotyped thinking scale as part of a larger study. Six participants from 3 different types of academic schools (low, moderate, and high achievement levels) were interviewed to determine whether their written responses were consistent with their actual perceptions. Results of t tests and analyses of variance revealed significant gender differences for 9 of 11 gender stereotyped thinking items and significant main effects because of academic levels for 6 of 11 items. There were no significant interactions and no other main effects for other study variables. Strategies for decreasing students' gender stereotyped thinking are suggested. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Sex Roles Springer Journals

Abstract

In this study we investigated the gender stereotyped thinking of 1672 Taiwanese senior high students (779 boys, 893 girls). Participants completed a Chinese version of a gender stereotyped thinking scale as part of a larger study. Six participants from 3 different types of academic schools (low, moderate, and high achievement levels) were interviewed to determine whether their written responses were consistent with their actual perceptions. Results of t tests and analyses of variance revealed significant gender differences for 9 of 11 gender stereotyped thinking items and significant main effects because of academic levels for 6 of 11 items. There were no significant interactions and no other main effects for other study variables. Strategies for decreasing students' gender stereotyped thinking are suggested.
