That Phony Bitch Debbie Is About to Steal Your Promotion
The study asked 80 young men and women about their personality while they studied for a master’s degree in business administration.
Eight years later, the researchers got back in touch to find out how their careers were progressing and found that ‘macho’ women who took an aggressive approach had been promoted less than more feminine sorts.
The bossy women who made a conscious effort not to appear too threatening by ‘self-monitoring’ their behaviour had done better than those who had carried on regardless.
Congrats, Deb! I made you this big, big cake. I’ll just leave it here.
