Study investigated the impact of traditional masculine role variables on psychosocial adjustment and rehabilitation outcomes in men with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Traditional masculine traits include dominance, aggression, competition, ambition, independence, and self-confidence. Participants completed surveys on traditional masculine gender role adherence and gender role conflict. Additional data, including measures of functional outcome, life satisfaction, psychosocial outcomes, and earnings, were obtained through the TBI model system longitudinal data collection system. Analysis examined the relationships between the masculine role variables and outcome variables. Results revealed that particular masculine role variables corresponded to different functional and psychological outcomes. Understanding these differences provides important information about men's participation in rehabilitation and their adjustment to injury.
