Sex Typing and Social Roles: A Research Report is based on a sociological survey that includes topics regarding changes in sex roles. The book deals with information derived from surveys and reports on the differences and similarities between the behavior, experience, and attitudes of men and women. The book addresses, more particularly, the ongoing changes in the social positions of the sexes, for example, from women's rights and privileges as a "private issue" to a public-policy issue.

In an expansion of the "behavioral confirmation" paradigm developed by M. Snyder et al, 12 sex-typed and 12 androgynous Bem Sex-Role Inventory undergraduates of each sex engaged in getting-acquainted telephone conversations with allegedly attractive and unattractive members of their own and the opposite sex. Although females were more socially responsive than males, the sexes neither differed in their responsiveness to physical attractiveness nor in their responsiveness to cross-sex and same-sex interaction.
Gender typing is the process by which a child becomes aware of their gender and thus behaves accordingly by adopting values and attributes of members of the sex that they identify as their own. Once aware of ones gender identity, the child will start to behave in gender roles normally adopted by their same-sex models. Therefore, these individual responses become internalized and function according to the appropriate gender-role standards. Other facets of the process can also result in atypical development.
