This research is a correlational quantitative study of the relationship between gender role self-concept and introversion-extraversion style on the dependent variable: dispositional authenticity. Previously developed, validated and published scales were employed to measure all three variables. Data was collected via survey questionnaire with a target audience of individual adults using network snowball sampling. Specifically, the study sought to establish whether there exists a relationship between traditional gender role self-concept and dispositional authenticity, with an additional correlation involving introversion-extraversion style as it relates to gender. This additional correlation is introduced to examine the interplay between gender role self-concept, associated gender stereotype! communication behavior, and self-imposed alteration of communication style typified by the assessed introversion-extraversion measurement.
