Signorella & Frieze (1989). Gender schemas in college students. Psychology: A Journal of Human Behavior, 26(4), 16-23.

173 female and 137 male university students were asked to give an example of their masculine and of their feminine behavior and to rate themselves on stereotyped and neutral traits. The sexes differed in the frequencies with which they used some specific themes in their examples. Approximately 10% of each sex stated that they never behaved in a manner characteristic of the other sex and were labeled traditional gender schematics (TGSs). TGS men rated themselves as less feminine on the trait ratings than did other men. TGS women rated themselves as less masculine and as more feminine than did other women. Ss who wrote about typical masculine or feminine behaviors did not rate themselves highly on the corresponding traits.
