  • Abstract   The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship of sexual harassment perception of gender attitude, and personality among high school students. Five hundreds and seventy-eight participants from 3 different school levels (i.e., junior, senior and vocational high schools) completed a questionnaire on Sexual Harassment Perception Scale. Moreover, 3 junior high school students with low sexual harassment perception and high sexual experiences, and the other 3 senior/ vocational students with low sexual harassment perception and high sexual experiences were recruited as target students and were interviewed by investigator for determining whether their written responses were consistent with their actual perceptions. T tests, correlation, and analysis of variance were conducted on the quantitative data. For the interview data, an inductive analysis was applied. The major findings are as follows:
    1. The high school students easily illustrated the definitions of sexual harassment. However, boys in particular have difficulties giving examples on sexual harassments.
    2. Over 90% of the entire students have experienced sexual harassment. Boys’ sexual harassment experiences were significantly higher than girls.
    3. Over 92% of the targeted students reported that their actual sexual harassment experiences was higher than their subjectively judgment of encountered sexual harassment.
    4. Among sexual harassments, sexual assault is the easiest to recognize while gender harassment is the hardest to detect.
    5. Students’ perceptions of sexual harassment are significant different which may be attributed to gender, school level, majors, and family backgrounds.
    6. Students’ perception of sexual harassment is counter correlated with their sexual harassment experiences.
    7. Students with high sexist attitudes have significantly higher perceptions of sexual harassment than low sexist attitude students.
    8. Students with neuroticism have significantly higher perception of sexual harassment than students with other personalities.
