A new study shows female managers are more than three times as likely as their male counterparts to underrate their bosses’ opinions of their job performance.
The discrepancy increases with women older than 50, the study states.
“Women have imposed their own glass ceiling, and the question is why,” said Scott Taylor, an assistant professor at the University of New Mexico Anderson School of Management who conducted the study.
No, no, no, it should read this way:
A new study shows male managers are more likely than their female counterparts to overrate their bosses’ opinions of their job performance. “Men have created their own virtual career elevator, and the question is why,” said the knucklehead who conducted this study but was able to interpret the findings only in one manner due to severe gender smog until Zuska puked on his shoes and straightened him out.
The men who were studied slightly overestimated how their bosses would rate them, while the female respondents underestimated their ratings on average by about 11 percent.
On-the-ball reporters questioned the knucklehead investigator as to why he ignored the men’s overestimation but placed gave the women’s underestimation responsibility for creating “their own’ glass ceiling. The knuckehead investigator had no answer.
