Men Ignore GPS, Women Ask for Help
Men are not only more likely to ignore directions given to them by a car’s GPS, they’ll probably argue with the female voice as well. Women may listen to the GPS and get a second opinion from a gas station attendant.
The same behavior is borne out in investment, experts say. Women are more likely to assess the situation, seek out assistance and consult advisors. Men are more likely to be overconfident and rely more on their own personal assessment of the market as opposed to the actual market facts and valuations. Doing so often leads to even bigger losses.
