Abstract

BARRA, Enrique. Psychological well-being and sex role orientation in university students. Ter Psicol [online]. 2010, vol.28, n.1, pp.119-125. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082010000100011.

This study was designed to estimate the relationships between psychological well-being, masculinity, femininity and the sex role orientation categories (masculine, feminine, androgynous, undifferentiated). Participants were 346 male and female students, 18 to 31 y ears old, from the University de Concepción (Chile). Individuals completed measures of psychological well-being and sex role orientation. Results show that psychological well-being had higher relationships with masculinity than with femininity and those participants with undifferentiated orientation reported lower well-being scores than did those with other orientations, being the androgynous category associated with the highest reported well-being. Diverse explanatory factors for obtained results are proposed.

Keywords : sex role orientation; psychological well-being; masculinity; femininity.
