Psychologists have established that women more often than men choose for employment places with initially low competition. Men in pursuit of high wages are willing to fight on the paid workplace, with many potential candidates.
A group of scientists from the University of Michigan conducted an experiment. The volunteers were asked to qualify for a position in a promising company. Before people had to make a choice: to try to find one place with a competition of 10 persons into place, or try their luck in applying for a job with the competition, 100 people in the place.
The first group recorded 53% of women and 41% men. As it turned out, women are much more important to have some guarantees. Men are by nature turned out to be more risky.
