    Of special interest to women, this is a book excerpt.

    Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.

    Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to “lean in.” Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.

    I would not want to read what Freud might have said about women climbing trees with their names written on their backsides. Maybe we should ask @Candice Galek. Seriously, I think that it was the different style of clothing that obscures from us the humor in their actions. Chances are they were just goofing off for the camera, but we don't see that because of expectations based on fashion.

    A very valid post. In our experience the 'need to please' syndrome is one manifestation of several characteristics emanating from a nurture deprivation heritage. There is usually an associated low self-esteem/efficacy with low resilience in the face of significant challenges. This may predispose to a destructive mind state of hopeless-helplessness. This archetypal individual not infrequently defaults into the chronic carer role which may also predispose to the hopeless-helpless mind state. Based on our stats, there is a higher incidence of physical illness in this archetype (chronic inflammatory). Intervention in these individuals includes neutralizing limiting beliefs through disputation and other methods, as well as respecting and engaging with the nurture deprivation heritage. We have spent several years developing a quantifying psychometric which allows us to track the effectiveness of intervention.

    Well quoted: "With no vision, you are a row boat adrift on the ocean with no paddles to guide or steer you towards your destination."

    Indeed, in absence of pivotal vision, there are chaos, confusion and doldrums and nothing seems excellent.
