] Spend less time thinking about the possible consequences of failure

] Enjoy "honest overconfidence" and, on average, rate their performance to be 30pc better than it is

] Initiate salary negotiations four times as often as women

When it comes to confidence, women…

] Tend to talk less or ask questions in public when there are more men in the room

] Believe that they are less valuable than men, according to a study on what they expect to earn, rather than what they deserve
