Even Women Think Men are More Creative One of the most fiercely debated questions is that on gender differences in creativity, and a significant volume of research suggests that men are 'perceived' to be more creative than women. Creativity, in a general sense of work and profession, is mostly associated with 'agentic' traits, such as boldness, risk taking and independence, which by (genetic) design, women mostly demonstrate to a lesser extent. These biases have far reaching consequences on the way women are given responsibilities at the workplace and the overall motivation and mental well-being. Remember, men are just 'perceived' to be creative. (Source: HBR)
