A new study suggests that women usually feel more stress than men at work. The reason could be the existing stereotype that women perform poorly than men on the given tasks such as presentation, negotiation, test, and competing projects.

Due to this kind of stereotype, some women may fail to perform up to her ability according to HBR. A classic experiment lets the women take a math exam, and these women were reminded about this traditional stereotype-the result, they did not perform well in math like men. There is also a study that suggests that the traditional stereotype affects women in playing chess and even in driving.

According to the source, women are not the only group that experiencing stereotype threat. Based on the documents gathered by researchers, African-Americans, Latinos, and people belong from low socioeconomic backgrounds are also experiencing this threat.
