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.
