Biologically, genetic anomalies aside, there are two. Psychologically, it can vary depending on a variety of influences, involving both physical influences (such as hormone levels in and beyond the womb), and psychological influences (such as early childhood experiences, strong or weak gender role models, positive or negative experiences, etc.). Socially, the view and meaning of gender can vary widely based on changing trends and fads and from place to place.

Many.

Gender has to do with the degree of masculinity or femininity that guides the person's behavior or interaction with his or her (or whatever's) environment. The mix seems to cover a wide spectrum, and is very difficult to turn into discrete units (how do you distinguish between a man who is 78% masculine and 22% feminine and lives in Japan, from a man who is 77% masculine and 23% feminine, living in Wyoming?)

Gender is different from "sex" which is normally partitioned as "male" or "female".

ALMOST all humans can be identified to one OR the other sex (not both -- hence the mathematical concept of "partition"); however, chromosome analysis has confirmed that some individual cannot be assigned uniquely to "male" (XY) or female (XX), since they have triplets instead of doublets (for example XXY).

In general, a person identified as male (XY) will tend to have more masculine traits than feminine traits. There are societies (e.g., some US states) where males are expected to behave AS IF they were 100% masculine... with weird people defining what that means. For a while, this was determined by movies (e.g., John Wayne) and later by TV series (Father Knows Best).

Biologically, there are male, female and intersex people who are born with ambiguous genitalia and who may choose their gender or have it assigned to them before they are old enough to choose.
Psychologically, there are many variants.
And none of that matters because we respect a person as person, no matter what their gender.
The only time it may be an issue is if we want to sex with them and they want to have sex with us. Then we may have a preference.
How often is that likely to happen? Of all the thousands of people we come into contact with, when is their gender ever an issue, assuming we are mature, sensible people?

Gender itself from psychological research is less of a set of definite concepts and more of a spectrum where most people fall into the male or female category. Gender is a psychological aspect tied in with a persons sense of self, and often is pretty well developed early on. From a biological perspective, sex is the physical characteristic one is born with, and aside from male and female, there are people who fall under the category of intersex for a variety of reasons, often chromosomal.
