Two lines of work examine how implicit gender stereotypes shape self-concepts. Studies 1 and 2 provide correlational and experimental evidence that gender differences in communal self-concept depend on implicit gender stereotypes. Study 3 shows that an eng=male stereotype predicts lower job commitment in women engineers to the extent that it predicts less self-concept fit in engineering.
