Instrumental and expressive socialization: a false dichotomy

Sex Roles Vol/Iss. 13 Published In Pages: 581-595
By Hendrix, Lewellyn, Johnson, G. David


This study reanalyzes the work of Barry, Bacon and Child (1957) on sex differences in child socialization. The authors use factor analysis to determine if the results of the original study are consistent with results yielded using modern methods and computer analysis. Authors find that there is no one general dimension of male-female difference in socialization and that the conclusions of Barry, Bacon, and Child have little meaning.
