Ok, so I have to do this science fair project due a week from now and I would really appreciate that anyone who has time takes part on this set of questions. They are not too much and are probably simple.

My goal is to find out which gender repress their inner self. Each person has an Anima (Male) or an Animus (Female) or well, inner self. I need to find out who are more willing to accept that side of them.

I hope there is nothing wrong with this thread, and to people who participate thank you really much in advance. Also, please be as true as you can with the questions.

Male Questions:


1. Do you like the color pink?
Nope

Why or why not?
It seems overused as a feminine colour, and seems demeaning to women how the colour is always applied to objects to try and make them appeal to girls more.
Plus it's cliche and I hate pastel soft colours anyway. :)
(and yes, i know, the avatar, but she's really nice :cln:)

2. Are you sensitive?
I don't think so, really, depends.


3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?
In terms of physical strength? yes, otherwise not really.


4. Are you gentle?
Yeah i guess, i don't ever intend on hurting people if that's what the question means.


5. Do you forgive easily?
Too easily sometimes, but i don't think in a naive or subserviant kind of way.

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people
Not really, i'm shy and my feelings are reserved, so I only hug special people, and i find it hard to say i love somebody.

I hope i answered substantially :o.

5. Do you forgive easily? Not really. I try to hold grudges, but usually fail at it


6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people? I love hugging people, saying I love you however, is very hard for me to say to anyone

1. In some situations, depending.

If boy stuff meaning football, video games and slacking off then yes. :vlol:

4. Are you afraid to show subtle male qualities?

Age: 14

Gender: Male

Male Questions:


1. Do you like the color pink? I don't like, or dislike it.


Why or why not?

It's a colour, and colour shouldn't be used to judge someone. If a guy likes pink, he likes pink and that shouldn't be used to assume anything about him.


2. Are you sensitive?

Yes, I believe I am a sensitive person. I don't hold grudges and am capable of recognizing and displaying many emotions.


3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?

Yes, I believe that men can do a lot of things better than women. However, I also believe that Women can do a lot of things better than men.


4. Are you gentle?

Yes, I also believe I am a gentle person. I can sometimes seem unkind, however I always apologize or give reason for my actions.


5. Do you forgive easily?

I do forgive easily. As I said above, I don't hold grudges, and I know how easily something unkind can slip off the tongue and be perceived wrong.


6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people.

I sit on the fence here. I do love people and show it, however I don't use the phrase "I love you" often. It's overused, cliched and it's hard to tell what it actually means these days. I show my feelings through my actions; Hugs, Kind Gestures etc.

Hope that helped. :)

Gender: Male

Male Questions:

1. Do you like the color pink?

I do - no particularly reason, but it goes nice with other colours (like black actually). Pink used to be my favourite colour as a child actually, so I don't know if that explains anything? :p


2. Are you sensitive?

I am, many things can annoy me and upset me.


3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?

Depends what it is to be honest. I think women are stronger in terms of determination and will power, and I think they are better at understanding the world. I have a lot of respect for women, I would say they are the better of the two sexes - plus they do have to go through a lot.


4. Are you gentle?

I normally am, depends on the situation to be honest. I would say that I am a good listener and understand other people's problems well.


5. Do you forgive easily?

Yeah, I do - again, depends on the situation to be honest. I really don't like conflict, so I even forgive people or apologize just to end the argument.


6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people

I really do, it makes me feel happier. I do think of myself as quite a loving person, I will always be there for someone. I love receiving love too (well, doesn't everyone?).

1. Do you like the color pink? Why or why not?
No, I don't. No specific reason, I'm just not very fond of the way it looks. I don't hate pink (that I avoid anything with a bit of pink in it), but if there's an option of choosing a different colour, I'll go with that.

2. Are you sensitive?
I'd say I am. Not overly, but I'd say I am sensitive.

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?
No.

4. Are you gentle?
I guess I am.

5. Do you forgive easily?
No, I am likely to get (or at least try to get) my revenge if someone crosses me or hurts me in any way.

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people
Not at all. I'm completely closed when it comes to expressing love. Not only in romantic love, I find it hard expressing love to my close friends or parents as well.

It's an okay color


Why or why not?
I don't mind the color, its just not MY color


2. Are you sensitive?
To an extent. At least i am more so than most men

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?
Not really. Like we all have advantages and disadvantages, but as a whole no

4. Are you gentle?
No

5. Do you forgive easily?
Hell no. I'm a huge grudge holder

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people

No. Love isn't something you just "give". I say I love you very sparingly and only when i mean it

Female Questions:

1. Are you assertive?

Not at all. Even when I'm confident about something, it's never to the point of cockiness.

2. Do you have a fighting spirit?

I don't like competitions much. I love a good debate, but I consider myself both a good winner and a good loser, and easily accept a loss if proven wrong. I have no particular desire to win, in and of itself.

3. Do you like to do boy stuff?

That depends on what you consider boy stuff. I like video games, and grew up with matchbox cars and lego. However, I'm not at all interested in sports or the likes.

4. Are you afraid to show subtle male qualities?

Though I'm not sure exactly what male qualities would be, I'm probably tomboyish enough to say no. My nickname sounds distinctly male also, something I don't mind at all.

5. Do you like to take control of situations?

No. Never.

1. Are you assertive?

Yes, I always try to get my own way and tell people how to act.

2. Do you have a fighting spirit?

It depends what I am fighting for - yes I am quite strong about things. I have wanted to give up before, because I suffer from spouts of depression.

3. Do you like to do boy stuff?

Yes, I like to do everything a boy does besides sports.

4. Are you afraid to show subtle male qualities?

Not really, I believe that some guys might find my male qualities quite endearing - I have as many female qualities to even it out.

5. Do you like to take control of situations?

I am not a bossy person, but I like to subtly get my own way and make people do what I want to do.

4. Are you gentle?: Id like to think so, but again that's for someone else to say.

Why or why not?

No reason... I just neither like it or dislike it.

2. Are you sensitive?

Yes, I am.

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?

Honestly? It depends on the task. There are tasks that man can perform better, and some tasks that women can perform better.

4. Are you gentle?

Yes, but I'm very short tempered.

5. Do you forgive easily?

No. If I trust someone and it's betrayed, then I find it hard to trust them again. People need to earn my trust. I don't mean that in a *****y way, either.

It depends on the situation, but most of the times I forgive the person if they ask me to. But I don't forgive them for the same mistake twice.

Yes, it makes me feel better, most of my friends say I'm the of "helper" type because I always make them feel better in sad or hard situations and because I'm always there for them.

Age: 16

Gender: Male


1. Do you like the color pink?
Depends on either the situation, the shade or the amount of it.

Why or why not?
Pink isn't really one of my colour choices for clothing, even though I guess it would probably suit me. I don't have a problem with people wearing it, although I don't think it suits all guys well.
In certain situations I think pink can look quite yucky, such as with the pink PS2. I don't think pink suits most electronic equipment at all. However, I don't have a problem with pink DVD, game or CD cases.
Pink walls look fine to me as long as the shade doesn't look too sharp. (Well, I couldn't stand a house where all of the walls are pink...)
On the other hand, I don't have a problem with an Aerosmith song being called Pink.


2. Are you sensitive?
Very. For instance, for a guy I get tearful quite easily.


3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?
Depends on what. I believe that most men are physically stronger than most women due to natural builds. That doesn't stop women from being able to muscle up and become stronger than guys though.
However, I think women have a generally better mindset (that's not to be confused with a nicer personality). As far as I can tell, they don't tend to let their egos get in the way as much as many men do.


4. Are you gentle?
I suppose I am a gentle person; I like cuddly toys. My eraser (which is crumbling to bits) will tell you otherwise, but I'm careful with most objects.


5. Do you forgive easily?
It depends on how often they treat me badly; if it is regularly then I usually don't. Even so, some people will probably believe that I have forgiven them even though I really haven't, since I don't tend to show that I haven't forgiven them. In most cases, they won't even know that they have done anything wrong in the first place!


6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people
Sometimes I feel awkward doing stuff like that, but I suppose I still like it.

Gender: M

1. Do you like the color pink?
Only in small qauntities, so i would wear something with pink on it, but not completley pink, that would be too overpowering as it is a very harsh, stand outy colour which im not good with.

So I would say yes

2. Are you sensitive? Yes


3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?
I think each gender are better at some things than the other gender and vice versa, but it is mainly due to ubringing. So No

4. Are you gentle? I can be, yes


5. Do you forgive easily? No, well i try not to


6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people.

Hugs yes, always

I love you never, it always feels forced

2. Are you sensitive?

I can be sensitive about things, but on the other hand I can be really harsh too. o_o

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?

Not really, I think women are more intelligent than men. Or have I got the wrong impression? I mean men are usually ruled by you know what. lol

4. Are you gentle?

Well, I've never hurt anyone in my life, and I'm no fighter so I guess I am gentle.

5. Do you forgive easily?

Yes I do forgive easily, I forgive people in the past for hurting or what they did to me when I was a kid so I guess I do forgive easily. No point in holding any grudges really.

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people

I used to use that word "I love you" to a girlfriend, but when you think about it, it doesn't make sense, I mean they are just words. The real love I suppose, is just being with somebody and making them feel comfortable and happy. There's no need to use those words.

Age : 21
Gender: Male

Questions:


1. Do you like the color pink?

No.

Why or why not?

It doesn't appeal to me. If I could choose either pink or any other colour for an item, I would take my chances with a random non-pink colour. I'm not entirely sure why, I just don't feel that pink contributes to any of my possesions/clothes/whatever in a good way. It doesn't reflect my personality, you might say. I don't mind it on others, or rather, it depends on the individual in question.

2. Are you sensitive?

Yes.

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?

From a general perspective, yes. But also vice versa.

4. Are you gentle?

Yes.

5. Do you forgive easily?

Too easily.

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people

I like showing affection, yes. I am on a hug-basis with most of my friends, even those who are males as well.

1. Do you like the color pink?
I don't mind it.

Why or why not?
Even though it's stereotypically a feminine colour, I've seen many boys sporting it as well. I don't think it's for one particular gender, just stereotyped that way.

2. Are you sensitive?
Quite.

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?
Physically, in some cases, yes, because men are physically stronger than women (not being sexist, just stating a fact) but other than that, no.

4. Are you gentle?
Yes. I'm a creator, not a destroyer. :)

5. Do you forgive easily?
Most of the time. But if someone's done something to me that really hurt me and it had quite an affect on my life and then came up about 10 years to apologize, then I wouldn't accept it.

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people
Yes, I do it all the time. :D

Hope I helped! :wve:

Funnily enough, pink used to be considered a manly color.

"At one point pink was considered more of a boy's color, (as a
watered-down red, which is a fierce color) and blue was more for
girls. The associate of pink with bold, dramatic red clearly affected
its use for boys. An American newspaper in 1914 advised mothers, "If
you like the color note on the little one's garments, use pink for the
boy and blue for the girl, if you are a follower of convention." [The
Sunday Sentinal, March 29, 1914.]

"There has been a great diversity of opinion on the subject, but the
generally accepted rule is pink for the boy and blue for the girl. The
reason is that pink being a more decided and stronger color is more
suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty,
is prettier for the girl." [Ladies Home Journal, June, 1918]

Although I did this, I think the questions for male and female should have either been the same or similar. The questions were kind of gender stereotypical to start with. Or another idea may have been to have some questions gender specific and a few that were the same/that could apply for either. Or maybe I didn't understand the OP's objective? :o

Thanks everyone! :wve:

The questionnaire is fundamentally flawed.

^Because it defines male and female traits based on gender roles and stereotypes created by society?
Hmm, I don't really know if I'm right lol. :p But what I have gone by is with this:

Usually, mainly men, think that they can't be sensitive or caring because such traits 'belong to girls'. What I have really seen is that women often relate with their male self a lot more than men do with their female self. Crazily enough, the majority of men see girls with this type of stereotypes and often list them as things they wouldn't want to act like or do just because of the fear of losing their masculinity. So, what I had planned was to make a questionnaire asking to see to what gender do the people who don't have a problem 'embracing their inner self' belong to.

I'm not really sure if I put it right but I hope you understand. :p

it's actually a good survey I think, you know even out of curiosity. I think some men are afraid to show their true feelings, they do keep it locked up because they're afraid to lose their masculinity.

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?

They can be physically stronger that women. Women can probably do better than men at most other things though. Eg, academic performance, looking after themselves, having good hygiene.

4. Are you gentle?

Yep. Though I can get mad easily at my parents, lol.

5. Do you forgive easily?

Depends on who it is, or what they've done to me. An apology usually makes it easily forgivable. Otherwise, it's just easier to forget.

6. Do you like to give love?

Yes, I can be a very loving person.

(...) My goal is to find out which gender repress their inner self. Each person has an Anima (Male) or an Animus (Female) or well, inner self. I need to find out who are more willing to accept that side of them.
I think you mixed that up: Anima must be female, and Animus male.

Male Questions:


1. Do you like the color pink?
No.

Why or why not?
I think of it as a 'weak' colour. It does not relate to anything or represent anything to me, it does not give a significant (positive) impact on an object should it be painted that colour, and I generally think it does not fit in with other colours.

2. Are you sensitive?
I don't think I am, except when it comes to internal illnesses, which can ground me easily. But that's probably not what you meant.

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?
Not things that matter these days, and not disproportionate to things women could do better than men.

4. Are you gentle?
Not really, I am very much to the point, which is not always appreciated.

5. Do you forgive easily?
It doesn't happen often that I need to. I think I may forgive, but I will still remember. Forgiving in the sense that we can move on, yes, forgiving in the sense that it'll be forgotten, no.

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people
I am not a very emotional man. I actually don't really know if I would like to or not, but fact is that I don't

2. Are you sensitive?
Yes, I pick up on peoples 'vibes' very quickly, I'm deeply thoughtful but I don't cry at the drop of the hat or anything (unless its a teary film.). Bah Just take it as a yes!

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?
Yes. Men are genetically meant to be stronger than women and so when it comes to labour intensive jobs, its usually best left to the men but if a woman can do the job, let her and pay her equal. Equality FTW.

4. Are you gentle?
Yes, I'm considerate of others and the environment around me but I'm an honest person. I believe lies hurt yourself and other people more in the long run.

5. Do you forgive easily?
(Yes) For small things (so most things) almost straight away, my bad moods fade as quickly as they come (a blessing in some ways), but for big things, it can take a long time.

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people
(No, not all the time) Occasionally. I'm not that touchy feely with people and I tend to reserve such emotions although I might let them if I'm feeling strongly like that.

Male Questions:


1. Do you like the color pink?

Yes and no (sorry to be difficult).

Why or why not?

Well, it depends on my mood. And it depends on the type of pink. Some pinks aren't very nice colours, others are nicer.

2. Are you sensitive?

I can be, but I've also been told that I'm not sensitive at all. I suppose it depends who I'm with, and what it's concerning.

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?

Yes, I do. Just like I believe that women can do a lot of things better than men. Although... of course, there are exceptions. For example, I'm inclined to believe that men are more likely to be better at tasks involving manual labour, but that's not to say that all men are stronger than all women. There are a lot of men who aren't very good at that sort of thing.

4. Are you gentle?

Gentle? Gentle with china? A gentle person? I'm not really sure what you're asking here...

I'll assume that you're asking if I'm a gentle person. Again, it depends. I do what needs to be done, and if that can lead to people getting hurt then I suppose that's just the way things are. Am I hurt easily? I can be. It really depends who's doing the hurting, I suppose.

5. Do you forgive easily?

No. I don't. If I feel that someone's broken my trust, which is hard to earn in the first place, then they weren't really worthy of it. I'm not good at trusting. But there are exceptions where I'll forgive someone. It depends who they are and what the transgression was etc.

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people

Not really, no. Not to people. There one or two people who I do say that two, and who I do hug, as it were, but that's because they deserve it. I wouldn't say that I'm the sort of person who likes to give hugs. I like it when I really like the person, and I have to trust them implicitly first. But that's just me, I suppose.


Oh... and shouldn't it be 'animus' for male and 'anima' for female? I might be wrong... but 'animus' looks like a second declension noun in Latin, which is masculine, and 'anima' looks like it would be a first declension noun, which is feminine.

2. Are you sensitive?

I'd like to think so - people sometimes comment on that. Okay, my mother comments on that, but she's an extraordinarily perceptive woman.

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?

Not really. There's little that would rule out either sex doing anything physical, or anything in either sex's brain that prevents them doing anything mental or feeling anything emotionally. However I believe the same about women. Basically, we're great at impregnating, and they're great at having babies. But even there, modern society has shown, does not mean that either sex has a monopoly on either activity.

4. Are you gentle?

I think so. Certainly more so than my sister, mother or many of the women that I know.

5. Do you forgive easily?

Too easily.

2. Are you sensitive?
sure.. behind the facade of every masculine being lies a weeping little boy. though not all will admit to it. besides... those who lash out in anger are quite certainly expressing their sensitivity.

3. Do you believe that men can do a lot of things better than women?
psychology here eh? some things man can do better than women. But not everything. of course... when you look at female body builders, that throws the whole "big strong man can do this but little weak woman can't" concept out the window. so I just negated myself.

4. Are you gentle?
why certainly.

5. Do you forgive easily?
sure

6. Do you like to give love? Ex. like to give hugs or to say 'I love you' to people

what the world needs now,
is love... sweet love.

Female Questions:


1. Are you assertive?
yup

2. Do you have a fighting spirit?
yup

3. Do you like to do boy stuff?
define "boy stuff"

4. Are you afraid to show subtle male qualities?
no

5. Do you like to take control of situations?
sometimes, though not always. leadership can be a royal pain in the buttocks - but it has its rewards.

Thanks everyone! :wve:




Hmm, I don't really know if I'm right lol. :p But what I have gone by is with this:

Usually, mainly men, think that they can't be sensitive or caring because such traits 'belong to girls'. What I have really seen is that women often relate with their male self a lot more than men do with their female self. Crazily enough, the majority of men see girls with this type of stereotypes and often list them as things they wouldn't want to act like or do just because of the fear of losing their masculinity. So, what I had planned was to make a questionnaire asking to see to what gender do the people who don't have a problem 'embracing their inner self' belong to.

I'm not really sure if I put it right but I hope you understand. :p
here's my two cents on the deal. the questions are a bit skewed in there basis. the questions for the females had practically nothing to do with anything that is typically considered to be a "male quality". Assertiveness is by no means a male or female quality. There's tons of guys who are total wussies and don't stand up for themselves. Having a fighting spirit can actually be closely tied in with assertiveness, but takes it a bit further. Still no relation to male or female gender. Lots of people will give up hope when it seems the odds are stacked against them. Being in control ... again this has nothing to do with either male or female gender. Many people, men and women alike - simply do not want to be in charge of anything. They just don't want that responsibility. although, I may say that it seems a lot of women tend to be pretty domineering from my experience. that brings me to the question of do you like to do boy things. What is the definition of "boy things"?. For that matter, why was there not a question for the males in the likes of "do you like to do girl stuff"?

And now we arrive at the questions for the males. These are very broad questions which are open for interpretation. and one in particular stuck out to me as not really being a necessary question to reflect ones inner femininity - "do you think men can do a lot of things better than women"? This question here seems to be the basis of a sexist remark rather than insight to ones masculinity or femininity. And why was that question not asked of the women in reverse? This quiz seems to be weighted heavily towards what society sees as characteristics that are acceptable or unacceptable of men and men only. Nowhere was it asked for the men "do you like to cross-stitch / operate a sewing machine (something that would generally be considered a feminine activity).

It strikes me as odd that there were not a set of questions presented as equal and opposite of each other. Not to say that I think men and women are totally opposite each other (reproductive organs aside that is). just that if you ask the boys "do you like pink" then you should as the girls "do you like [insert name of decidedly masculine color here]". Thereby you are saying that "society calls this a masculine thing, do you as a female enjoy this item"

It's a girl color and fits them (depends on people). I feel it doesn't fit men mostly imo, and definitely doesn't fit me.

In a way, yes I think so.

I believe women can do a lot of things men can do too, but men is gonna pawn the women anyway. Imagine losing to a girl, God that will be embarassing!

Yes, but if they repeat the mistake then I won't.

Yes, I understand but my real goal in the project is what follows:

Usually men don't like to show their feminine side. Be it any type of stereotyped trait or those they find are female traits because most men (and as hippie as it sounds) don't really embrace that female part of them and find balance. A girl can be assertive, strong willed, etc. but this traits come from their male unconscious which makes them male traits. Same goes with men, their female unconscious includes those of sensitivity, closeness, etc. but they repress this feelings. So, in sense my goal is to find which gender has more balance, be it accepting a color such as pink to having traits from their female unconscious. Not all men are strong and macho as you said some are, it's just that some are just more in touch with their feminine side (which includes its on traits) than others.

I hope I cleared that up well :o
