Interesting. I’ve had my share of bad bosses (male and female), but if you ask me to name my top 3 bosses of all time, every one of them is female.

Wasn’t there also data suggesting that male supervisors are less likely to care about employees’ coming in late, so long as the appropriate amount of time was worked (or work was done)?

I wonder if anybody’s explored these phenomena by field–do people in different fields score differently on these as well (whether because fields have different requirements or because fields tend to draw particular personalities)?

This may sound a little stereotyped or archaic, but I was thinking that maybe it had to do with female bosses feeling they need to have more control over their employees than males, in order to be taken seriously or shown respect. I think there are some places where a female boss is not respected, so she has to tighten the reins so that no one takes advantage of her. Maybe….?
