The Effect of Sex-Role Orientation on level of Adjustment Among University Freshmen in Jordan

Auther : Taisier AL-Nhar , Abdalla Ababneh

This study is concerned with the effect of sex-role orientation on adjustment. A sample of 180 university first-year students was classified into four different sex-role attributes according to their scores on the masculinity and femininity subscales of the Arab version of the Bem Sex-Role inventory.

Results of the two-way analysis of variance on each of the adjustment dimensions (family  relationships, social relationships and emotional stability) revealed significant differences among the four sex-role attributes for each dimension. It was found that androgyny is associated with optimum levels of adjustment, followed by masculine, feminine and finally undifferentiated individuals. The results are interpreted on the basis of social changes occurring in Jordan which make it possible for both sexes to incorporate other-sex attributes to achieve optimum levels of adjustment.
