Two studies are described that consider the effects of a father-identification upon the sex-role and peer intimacy of the college-age daughter. The first study concerns the masculinizing quality of a strong primary father-identification (relative to a weak primary father-identification) and the diminished heterosexual orientation of the daughter. The second study explores the role of empathic skill in distinguishing between these two types of father-identified females.
