GIAVONI, Adriana  and  TAMAYO, Álvaro. Masculine inventory of the self-concept's gender squemas. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.3, pp.249-259. ISSN 0102-3772.

The purpose of this article was the construction and validation of Masculine Inventory of the Self-Concept's Gender Schemas (IMEGA). Based on masculine and feminine scales that compose Gender Schemas of Self-Concept Inventory (IEGA), this instrument evaluates male self-concept's masculine and feminine schemas. The sample used was composed by male university students. For the construction validity, factors analysis were performed for both scales (Principal Axis Factoring - PAF) with oblique and orthogonal rotations) and the internal factors consistency analysis (coefficient alpha) were performed for all factors. The results showed that both IMEGA scales were composed by multifactorial structures that are alike IEGA's factorial structures. Properly validated, IMEGA could be used in the evaluation of male self-concept's masculine and feminine schemas.

Keywords : self-concept; masculine schema; feminine schema.
