Sex differences in personality are larger in gender equal countries: Replicating and extending a surprising finding.

An extensive personality measure, the IPIP-NEO-120, with large country samples from 22 countries is used, showing that women typically score higher than men on all five trait factors, and that these relative differences are larger in more gender equal countries.

It is concluded that the main arguments against D are incorrect, logically inconsistent, or easily answered on methodological grounds and when correctly employed and interpreted, D provides a valid, convenient measure of group and sex differences in multivariate domains.

Sex beyond the genitalia: The human brain mosaic

This study demonstrates that, although there are sex/gender differences in the brain, human brains do not belong to one of two distinct categories: male brain/female brain and most brains are comprised of unique “mosaics” of features.

The Distance Between Mars and Venus: Measuring Global Sex Differences in Personality

The idea that there are only minor differences between the personality profiles of males and females should be rejected as based on inadequate methodology.

Interval Estimates of Multivariate Effect Sizes

Monte Carlo methods were used to examine techniques for constructing confidence intervals around multivariate effect sizes. Using interval inversion and bootstrapping methods, confidence intervals

Evaluating gender similarities and differences using metasynthesis.

Findings provide compelling support for the gender similarities hypothesis, but also underscore conditions under which gender differences are most pronounced.
