For this purpose they invited 250 volunteers-men who asked questions about masculinity. Also, doctors have found, how often and for what reasons a particular Respondent refers to the doctor.

The researchers found that those participants who consider themselves to be independent and courageous, are much less likely to use medical institutions and by any means avoid visits to the woman doctor. It also appeared that they are trying to hide the truth about the state of their health, not to mention in conversation with the doctor about a bad feeling
