The study examined the impact of gender identity on gender role ideology and occupational sex typing among 166 Israeli adolescents. The findings indicate that gender identity affects occupational sex-typing. Specifically, androgynous respondents provided more liberal evaluations of feminine-typed occupations than did the undifferentiated group. Regarding gender role ideology, gender identity was only found to have an impact among the male respondents. Specifically, sex-typed and undifferentiated males expressed more traditional evaluations of feminine-typed roles than did the androgynous and cross-sex-typed respondents. In addition, an effect was found for gender regardless of gender identity, i.e., the females expressed less sex-typed evaluations of occupations and less traditional perspectives of gender roles than did the males.
