Nice Guys ...
Posted by Erik Gerding

In a study that is sure to make faculty meetings around the country even less pleasant, Timothy Judge, Beth Livingston, and Charlice Hurst found that more "agreeable" men earn less than disagreeable male colleagues.  The earnings differential between agreeable and disagreeable women was less pronounced.  At the same time, the pay gap between disagreeable men and disagreeable women was larger than the gap between agreeable men and agreeable women.  This fascinating study attempts to tease out whether conforming/not conforming to gender stereotypes might explain part of the gender gap in pay.  And its implications go far beyond that.
