8 of female respondents wrote that they really are delicate or sensitive. 6 of them see themselves as caring. The purpose of these three questions was to see if men and women have in their minds a stereotypical picture of their and opposite gender and if they fit to this image. Looking on answers given by respondents few things may be observed. Women identify themselves with most frequent adjectives more often than men.

Nightmares are generally defined as dreams that are frightening enough to wake up, or nearly wake up, the dreamer. In studies where participants have kept detailed, daily dream journals, women report an average of two nightmares a month, while men report an average of one and a half per month. In addition, women seem to have many more dreams that have nightmarish elements and themes but are not quite terrifying enough to be true nightmares. Why do women have more scary dreams than men? Some studies indicate that people who have more nightmares than average tend to be more creative, sensitive, trusting and emotional than average.
It was found that "taking charge" was perceived predominantly as a male trait and "taking care" was associated with a woman. Certain traits that are perceived as feminine can also be seen as less vital to leadership. This can lead women being evaluated more negatively than a man for positions in leadership. This does not only have a negative impact on women but also the company itself. Women are less likely to be chosen to work in positions of power because of false stereotypes.
A large body of literature done in the field concentrates on the effect of gender stereotypes on women in the run for office. Gender stereotypes play a crucial part in raising the glass ceiling; it emphasizes and reinforces beliefs that women lack leadership abilities and skills. As information shortcuts, stereotypical perceptions partly shape public opinion on female politicians’ characteristics and their policy competences (Holman, Merolla, and Zechmeister, 2011; Schneider and Bos, 2013; Bauer, 2015).Apparently, there are characteristics that belong to men and women respectively and that correspond with gender roles consisting of communal and agentic roles. Women are tied closely with communal roles, such as in comparison with men, women
Hall (2011) also remarks that the fact that women are likely to touch other people is particularly visible in female-female interactions, whereas in male-male pairs touch is maximally different. Even in sport settings, in which there are fewer restrictions on touch, male-male touch is still much less frequent than between women in the same circumstances; moreover, women tend to feel more comfortable with same-gender touch than men do. This, as Hall suggests, can be attributed to homophobic attitudes, the need to control aggression, and habits deeply rooted in social
According to this study, self-objectification reduces the performance of mathematics only in women. Another study conducted in 2004 (Roberts and Gettmann) has shown that objectification experiences that the media exposed play an important role at the beginning of self-objectification with the psychological consequences accompanying the objectification. Frederick, Forbes, Grigorian & Jarcho (2007) have examined gender differences on the basis of objectification theory and have achieved the result that women showed lower body satisfaction than men. Another study (Tiggemann and Kuring, 2004) that examined the predictability of self-objectification in depressive mood and eating disorders confirm this predictability for women. Oehlof, Musher-Eizenman, Neufeld & Hauser (2009) have shown that women self-objectified at a higher level than men similar to the aforementioned other study findings.
If an individual feels basically unattractive unappealing, or in some way physically inferior, these self perceptions are likely to have a powerful effect on other areas of their lives especially self esteem, depression and anxiety (Raymond, 1984). Furnham, Badmin and Sneade (2002) studied, whether people who are dissatisfied with their bodies have lower self esteem. The study found that dissatisfaction with body image and weight was significantly correlated with low self esteem. In the present research findings, the results suggest that as body image satisfaction increases, so does self esteem. For people of all ages, body image takes on a disproportionately important role in the determination of self esteem.
Kaufman 's work further demonstrated that female poets were more likely to suffer from mental illness than any other class of writers. In addition, female poets were more likely to be mentally ill than other eminent women, such as politicians, actresses, and artists. It has been proved that famous female poets are more likely to be mentally ill that famous female novelists or famous male poets or famous female visual artists. In Study One, 1,629 writers were analysed for signs of mental illness. Female poets were found to be significantly more likely to suffer from mental illness than female fiction writers or male writers of any type.
Minority sexual orientation is also associated with higher levels of mental health morbidity in Australian women. Over 34.8 per cent of lesbian and bisexual women had been diagnosed with depression by a doctor compared to 22.8 per cent of women in the general population. Almost one in five (19.3 per cent) lesbian and bisexual participants in a West Australian study reported current treatment for a mental health problem including anxiety, depression, and stress-related problems compared to 8.5 per cent of women in the general population. Stigmatisation, discrimination and lack of social support may play a role in explaining poorer mental
