In a recent post Bharathi Jagadeesh said:
"I also have a somewhat amusing, but mostly frightening factoid:
Does anyone else think that about 5% of women believe they're
in the top 5%, but that about 60% of men do?"
This reminds me of something an established female researcher recently
told me: that women ask for 40% (!!) less money on their NIH grant
proposals than men do. Do we do cheaper research? manage money more
effectively? underestimate the value of our work? I know on my next
grant application I am not going to try to be frugal!
