This book analyzes and criticizes the phenomenon of
gender-measuring inventories and practice of measuring
gender-related concepts in psychometrics. This work provides
evidence for the fact that gender is perceived in psychometrics as
one of the core personality dimensions that has to be theorized.
Gender-measuring inventories can be seen as a part of regulatory
mechanisms in the society because they function to control gendered
behavior in individuals through imposing gender roles embedded in
the content of the inventories. The book concludes that
psychometric approach to gender as a quantitatively measurable core
personality characteristic is linked to the view on gender in
psychology as a whole, and this approach effects view on gender in
psychological science and in society as well, because according to
the evidence provided psychology is seen as an authority in the
social discourse on sex and gender.
