EQSQ.com’s recent column explains workplace gender discrimination by suggesting that men and women have different aptitudes and are unlikely to be represented equally in any given career. Individuals who take the EQ SQ quizzes may be likely to make wiser career choices armed with insight into their personality types. This could lead to greater job satisfaction and lower employment turnover.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics baby boomers born from 1957 to 1964 held an average of 10.5 jobs from ages 18 to 40. That is an average of a career change every two years. Perhaps by taking EQSQ.com’s quizzes, men and women can find the ideal career sooner and develop professionally faster because they will be in a career that matches their abilities. While particular careers have disproportionate numbers of men and women, it is not be because of workplace gender discrimination but because men and women have different aptitudes and skills.

“…Women should be paid and rewarded in exactly the same way as men for equal jobs. However, I do not believe that all men and all women are similarly equipped (physically or mentally) to be able to perform tasks with the same degree of proficiency,” EQSQ.com columnist Katrina Boydon notes in her piece. In an interview she added, “I have seen people surprised to learn that they are more systemizing than empathizing, or vice versa, but this knowledge can only help an individual choose the career for which they are best equipped.”

The full text of the feature "Gender Discrimination in the Workplace: It's Not What You Think" can be found at EQSQ.com.

Studies performed by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Ph.D. indicate that 53 percent of men have systemizing brains compared to 17 percent of women, giving reason to the observation that more men than women enter the fields of science and technology. This is not discrimination simply on the basis of gender. EQSQ.com emphasizes that women with high systemizing quotients are just as likely to enter and succeed in careers in science, technology, and other technical fields.

The EQ test and the SQ test give individuals, regardless of their gender, a tool to help define careers that best match their personalities and aptitudes. Knowing that they possess the innate skills to succeed can make a positive difference to work relationships, career prospects, advancement, and opportunities for both men and women.

EQSQ.com centers on the Empathizing-Systemizing theory of the male versus the female brain types. The tests were developed by professors Simon Baron-Cohen and Sally Wheelwright at the University of Cambridge, England. Systemizers and empathizers can find information and resources for education, educational programs, and career-choice.
