Women Underrate Bosses' Opinions of Them

The Boston Globe reports on a fascinating study presented at the Academy of Management conference this week. Here's the basic finding:

"A new study shows female managers are more than three times as likely as their male counterparts to underrate their bosses' opinions of their job performance. The discrepancy increases with women older than 50, the study states. 'Women have imposed their own glass ceiling, and the question is why,' said Scott Taylor, an assistant professor at the University of New Mexico Anderson School of Management who conducted the study."

Do you have a view as to why women, particularly older women, come to these conclusions?
