Study: Men interrupt women more in tech workplaces, but high-ranking women learn to interrupt

Stashed in: Women, Management, Women in Tech

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

Men are almost three times as likely to interrupt women as they are to interrupt other men.

Here's where things start to get really interesting. Of the 212 total interruptions from men that I logged, 149 of them—that's 70% of the total—were interruptions where women had been previously speaking. Men do interrupt other men, but far less often.

That sucks.

I need to practice the art of being quiet more.

Well, there's two types of people. Talkers and Doers.

I always heard there were two kinds of people, those who think there are two kinds of people and those who don't. 

Christina, ha! There are 10 types of people -- those who read binary, and those who don't.

Greg, I need to be more of a doer and less of a talker.

I do like that the video ends with the blue pill (Facebook) or the red pill (Google+).

That can't be a coincidence.
