Handbook of Management Scales/Masculinity
Masculinity (CR = 0.82)[edit | edit source]
Description[edit | edit source]
Hofstede's five cultural factors are reconceptualized as ten personal cultural orientations: independence, interdependence, power, social inequality, masculinity, gender equality, risk aversion, ambiguity intolerance, tradition, and prudence. A new 40-item scale is developed to measure these personal cultural orientations. Much effort has been invested in ensuring validity, reliability, and cross-cultural measurement equivalence of the new scale.
Definition[edit | edit source]
Masculinity represents the expression of assertiveness, self-confidence, aggression, and ambition.
