Asking for Advice: Actual vs Predicted Impressions
I’m particularly interested in how mentorship relationships form in the workplace and academic settings, and what may precede or facilitate their development. One essential component of a mentor-mentee relationship is the ability to feel comfortable asking for advice. This summer I will begin data collection on a project examining gender differences in how people think they think they will be perceived when they ask a superior for advice, versus how they are actually perceived.
