Taube, Christoph O. 2021-10-12T09:55:12Z eng Objective<br />The study aimed to validate the Body Image Matrix of Thinness and Muscularity—Male Bodies (BIMTM-MB), a two-dimensional figure rating scale consisting of 64 three-dimensional male bodies, arranged in an 8 × 8 grid, with muscularity increasing stepwise on the vertical axis and body fat on the horizontal axis.<br /><br />Method<br />The online sample included 355 men participating in an online survey. Besides the BIMTM-MB, participants completed questionnaires on body-related attitudes, behaviors, and psychopathology. Another 91 men were recruited to examine test–retest reliability of the BIMTM-MB.<br /><br />Results<br />The BIMTM-MB showed good convergent and criterion validity. Men meeting their own body ideal showed higher body satisfaction and lower body-related psychopathology. Test–retest reliability was high.<br /><br />Conclusions<br />The BIMTM-MB proved to be a reliable and valid measure and is recommended for use in research and clinical practice to examine central aspects of male body image.
