These two gender-oriented poles of human behavior are intermingled in the individual mind to produce a mixture of gender traits that underlie personality and behavior. A statistical model of the overlap of the masculine and feminine traits generates eight specific gender types: the feminine woman, the womanly women, the womanly man, the androgynous man, the androgynous woman, the manly man, the manly woman, and the masculine man.

Characteristics of each type are offered together with examples from a wide range of literary texts.
