TYPE OF GENDER SCHEMA OF IDEAL AND REAL LIFE PARTNER AND ITS INFLUENCE ON THE QUALITY OF FORMED RELATIONSHIPS

The results of two studies were presented in the paper. First one, which was replication of Orlofsky's research aimed to verify patterns of preferences connected with type of gender schema of ideal partner among students. The goal of the second one was to reconstruct real pattern of mating connected with type of gender schema of people who already had formed close- relationships and testing the quality of these relation­ships. The results of the first study have shown that young people, particularly women, prefer androgynous ideal partners. The real pattern of mating (study 2) was different in some part than pattern of ideal partner. Analysis of quality of relationships has shown that the best opinion of their relationships characterized androgynous people with close- relationships with androgynous or sex-typed partner formed.
