The article examines intergender and intragender differences in life orientations and attitudes toward work among Israeli students. Data were obtained from 428 respondents in the faculties of engineering and social sciences (psychology and social work) at four universities. Few attitudinal differences were found between the sexes. However, significant intra-gender differences were found, especially between men in gender-typical and atypical careers. In contrast to their "gender-typical" counterparts, the "gender-atypical" men emphasized more traditionally "masculine" orientations such as competitiveness, achievement, independence and control, political activity, and job success. Compared with these groups, the intra-gender differences between the "gender- typical" and "gender atypical" women were less significant.
