The BSRI has been used with participants across cultures and countries, but rarely in an older population in Brazil, as we have done in this study. Our primary objective was to determine whether the BSRI can be used to explore gender in an older Brazilian population. Exploratory factor analysis was performed, followed by a varimax rotation orthogonal solution for iteration to examine the underlying gender roles of feminine, masculine, androgynous and undifferentiated, and to validate the BSRI in older adults in Brazil. The participants, 80 men, women were 65—99 years old average Although the BSRI appears to be a valid indicator of gender among elderly Brazilians, the gender role status identified with the BSRI was not correlated with being male or female.

Sandra Bem 's goal of the BSRI was to examine psychological androgyny and provide empirical evidence to show the advantage of a shared masculine and feminine personality versus a sex-typed categorization. Traits are evenly dispersed, 20 masculine, 20 feminine, and 20 filler traits thought to be gender neutral. Gender roles may be defined as "expectations about what is appropriate behavior for each sex".
