Gender typing the process by which children acquire the values, motives, and behaviours considered appropriate for their gender in their particular culture culture still has a role in shaping gender. Gender-based belief: an idea that differentiates males and females, can be completely false i. e. pink is for girls, blue is for boys. Gender identity the perception of oneself as either male or female: sense of own gender, develops at about 2-5 years. Gender-role preferences: desire to possess certain gender-typed characteristics, sets of expectations for males and females, males more domination, females more passive. Gender stability the fact that males remain male and females remain female. Gender constancy the awareness that superficial alterations in appearance or activity do not alter gender.
