bucket of lies

“One interesting gender difference observed by Koch (1994) is that when dealing with computers, girls blame their own inexperience and lack of ability if something goes wrong, hence decreasing their self-confidence level, while boys tend to blame the program or the computer system if something goes astray.”

There was a big explanation here a moment ago, but my computer ate it.

  1. but it IS the computer’s fault. can it really be considered “blaming” if it’s something that’s actually happened?
