“The findings suggest that people tend to accept genetic explanations as if they’re more powerful or irrevocable, which can lead to self-fulfilling prophecies”säger professor Steven Heine vid University of British Columbia, som genomförde studien.
Alltså: biologistiska förklaringar tenderar att bli innestängande och självuppfyllande. Ytterligare lite sammanfattning av studien:
"[The] research suggests that women tend to perceive gender differences in math to be innate or genetic, but when women consider such differences to be based on theories of nurture rather than nature, they can improve their performance.Andra bloggar om: feminism, biologism, jämställdhet, gener
The study doesn’t explore whether innate sex differences exist, Instead, it investigated how the perceived source of stereotypes can influence women’s math performance."
