Description

"Conformity to masculine norms is defined as meeting societal expectations for what constitutes masculinity in one’s public or private life. Conversely, nonconformity to masculine norms is defined as not meeting societal expectations for what constitutes masculinity in one’s public or private life." There are 11 factors: Winning, Emotional Control, Risk-Taking, Violence, Dominance, Playboy, Self-Reliance, Primacy of Work, Power Over Women, Disdain for Homosexuals, and Pursuit of Status. The purpose is to develop a normative measure of masculinity that assesses a larger number of masculine norms than previous normative measures, to assess the affective, behavioral, and cognitive dimensions of masculine gender role norms and also to assess conformity and nonconformity to masculine gender role norms.
