Description
Psyc 320 Lecture 52 By the end of today’s class you should be able to: 1. Discuss sex differences in attributional styles and the developmental trajectory associated with sex differences in attributional styles 2. Discuss sex differences in global self esteem, the developmental trajectory associated with sex differences in global self esteem and ethno-cultural variation in sex differences in global self esteem Do males and females make different attributions for success and failure (cont.)? • Rosenthal: among managers at a financial services firm, civil engineering company, and local health authority found that: males were more likely than females to attribute their success to ability; females were more likely than males to attribute their success to effort; females were more likely than males to attribute the success of their subordinates to ability; males were more likely than females to attribute the success of their subordinates to effort; females (but not males) believed ability had significantly more to do with success of their subordinates than it had to do with their own success • Rosenthal: found that males are more likely to attribute their success to their ability and females were more likely to attribute their success to effort. Females more likely to attribute the success of their subordinates to ability; males more likely to attribute subordinates success to effort • This reflects a leadership style of females called transformational leadership style (taking account of opinions of others--this is called the we-can, I-can’t paradox for women [their ability is due to effort, others is due to ability]) • Female managers may have an issue of confidence--attributions based on success based on ability are more likely to be promoted--attributions on effort result in less likely to be promoted--supply side characteristic that is limiting women’s progress • Females--democratic leadership style. Males--autocratic leadership style
