Из исследований Колумбийского профессора экомики, 2005-2007ой год, штат Нью-Йорк, а не тьму-тараканья.

Чтобы реально что-то утверждать, надо, конечно, читать сами исследования, потому как статистика и социальные исследования на ней основанные - дело тонкое и легко манипулируемое. Тем не менее, выводы не кажутся мне дикими и, к сожалению, вполне соответствуют моим наблюдениям.

О романтике:
“We found that men did put significantly more weight on their assessment of a partner’s beauty, when choosing, than women did. We also found that women got more dates when they won high marks for looks.

He continued: “By contrast, intelligence ratings were more than twice as important in predicting women’s choices as men’s. It isn’t exactly that smarts were a complete turnoff for men: They preferred women whom they rated as smarter — but only up to a point ... It turns out that men avoided women whom they perceived to be smarter than themselves. The same held true for measures of career ambition — a woman could be ambitious, just not more ambitious than the man considering her for a date.

О работе (та же статья, но ссылаясь на другую статья в Times, которая, в свою очередь, указывает на несколько исследований по теме):
- Вomen who behave in ways that cleave to gender stereotypes — focusing on collegiality and relationships — are seen as less competent. But if they act too macho, they are seen as “too tough” and “unfeminine.”
- Мen — and female secretaries — are not considered less competent if they dress sexy at work, but female executives are.
- Women still tend to be timid about negotiating salaries and raises. Men ask for more money at eight times the rate of women
- Мen who get angry at the office gain stature and clout, even as women who get angry lose stature because they are seen as out of control
