The personalities and attitudes are also shaped to a large extent in the early years through the experiences of the child with his environment. Culture too adds its own dimension to our beliefs and attitudes and shapes our mental makeup. The mental makeup of men across various countries and cultures might vary, however when it comes to some of the core issues, they are all the same. Irrespective of one’s education , social status as well as financial status, the male stereotype psyche and gender role is something that is etched out in the genes of all males. All across the world, men are sensitive to two factors, one being their sexuality and the second being their hair growth or baldness.
