Social psychology and sex-linked modeling

Social psychology and sex-linked modeling

Social psychology and sex-linked modeling

Every aspect of our behavior and self-perception is influenced by the things we encounter in our daily lives, whether we like it or not. Although we can’t deny the impact of media, our parents and other primary caregivers provide us with the earliest and most influential examples of how to behave in accordance with our gender.

Gender identity formation in young children begins at an early age with exposure to and imitation of same-sex caregivers. You probably have at least three or four habits that you picked up from a parent or caregiver of the same gender that you still practice today. Using Bandura’s social cognitive theory as a guide, you’ll think about which characteristics of same-sex adults you share and why. Social psychology and sex-linked modeling
