Items in Which Men Outscored Women
Copernicus, a marketing consulting and research firm in Auburndale, Mass., investigated perceptions of male versus female marketing executives in terms of 34 different aspects of decision-making and management styles. Men tend to be more externally focused, paying "too much attention to what competitors are doing" (56 percent to men, 43 percent to women), and short-term oriented (67 percent to men, 46 percent to women).
