Men are being squeezed out of the best jobs by talkative women.
Men face being squeezed out of the best-paying jobs. This is because according to a study they cannot compete with the face to face confidence of female rivals.
The study said that females were winning the battle for success. They are better at getting on with colleagues and clients. The study was done over a 20 year period and it found that a lower number of men were appointed to the highest paid jobs. This was even though the number of jobs increased.
The UBS International Centre of Economics in Society who published the research said, the key seems to be the growing demand for social skills, like empathy, communication, emotion, recognition, and verbal expression. Women have a comparative advantage according to evidence from psychological research.
Because of the advance in technology and automation, this puts a premium on the ability to talk to people and win them over.
