The study was projected in order to identify to what extend sex andsex-role orientation are connected with the readiness for aggression. Three different mechanisms of aggression were considered: emotional-impulsive (EIR), habitual-cognitive (H-CR) and personality-immanent (P-IR). According to gender schema theory people can internalize various gender depending on the extent to which they perceive themselves as possessing stereotypically underline masculine and feminine traits. The data from 464 respondents were collected. Patterns of readiness for aggression were measured by the Readiness for Interpersonal Aggression Inventory whereas the Psychological Gender Inventory was applied to asses gender identity. The results show that the masculine compared with the feminine individuals manifested higher level of H-CR and P-IR while the reversed pattern was observed in case of E-IR. These results reflect sex differences: E-IR higher among females and H-CR and P-IR higher in males.
