Janice's Shyness And Conversations Case Summary

Good Essays
Janice’s shyness could stem from evolutionary psychology, this means that women are not used to being in a role that involves overpowering men in a conversation. Too, women historically are not known to be in jobs in which men tend to dominate. Therefore, Janice seems to be experiencing some hesitation in her new role and as the only woman in her current situation. Too, another factor that could contrubute to Janice’s lack of conversation during the meeting could have something to do with gender differences on self-disclosure. Women tend to be more comfortable disclosing about themselves and personal experiences whereas men tend to disclose more in relation to money, business, and work. Therefore, this difference could reflect on conversations
