HBR Blog: The Toot-Your-Own-Horn Gender Bias

Share this post:

Here's my latest Harvard Business post.

I watch for this bias with my daughter.  My son is quite comfortable telling me how awesome he is and it feels natural for him to do so; my daughter ‘not so much'.  In fact, last week after reviewing her standardized test scores, she started to tell me about a type of math problem she doesn't do well.   I responded with “Please do tell me, and then I'd like to hear about a type of problem you do especially well.”  She did.  No complaining, just matter-of-factly said, “I'm awesome at division.”

Happy was I.
