Be More Ladylike to Succeed?

Excelle Team

January 20, 2011

Forget trying to “be like men.” According to a new study, women who act like a lady are far more likely to succeed. The study asked 80 men and women about their personality while they were studying for a post-grad degree in business administration. Eight years later, they checked in with the group and found that the women who were more aggressive in their approach were less likely to have been promoted.

Acting like men is described as “oozing with self confidence” and “assertiveness,” while being more like a lady is all about being “meeker,” less of a “go-getter.”

Do you agree?

    I feel that many women who don't feel comfortable with themselves try to adapt to their environment by acting like those around them (mainly men). But if you are comfortable with who you are, you'll act like the confident female you are. Being "ladylike" is not being meek, it's just being confident and self-aware and aren't those the people who get ahead?

    This is ridiculous...how can you get promoted if your meek ? mouse like??? (unless they are talking about being humble with manners) and an assertive person is more likely to get the job done then a less assertive person? I hate the corporate world...

    I am really not surprised. An assertive woman will most likely be labeled, lets just say it, a bitch. But if a man is assertive, he is macho. The continuous double-standard...will it ever end?
