Masculine and feminine personality traits

   Certain personality traits are often considered to be masculine 
   and others feminine.  Traits such as aggressiveness, 
   competitiveness, ambition and dominance are often regarded as 
   masculine while traits such as kindness, sympathy, and pity are 
   regarded as feminine.  Doesn't this represent a confused sense 
   of values?  Personally I have always detested aggressiveness 
   and tendencies to dominate in anyone, man or woman; and I 
   renounced competitiveness and ambition in myself when I was 
   young, shortly after finishing college.  Does this make me 
   feminine?  If so let me ask the following questions: Aren't the 
   feminine personality traits morally and intellectually superior 
   to the masculine ones?  Doesn't the Bible teach kindness, 
   sympathy and concern for our fellow man?  Aren't the feminine 
   personality traits in conformity with the moral teachings of 
   the Bible and the masculine traits in opposition to it?  If 
   someone thinks that a man ought to be "manly" and have the 
   masculine personality traits such as aggressiveness, 
   competitiveness, ambition, etc. then I think that person's 
   values are very confused and mixed up.  A man can have all of 
   the so-called feminine personality traits and still be very 
   much a man.
