We first review evidence suggesting that these gender differences result from women placing more importance on displaying effort than do men. We then present the results of two studies seeking to develop measures of beliefs about effort that might explain these gender differences in behavioral self-handicapping. Women, across a wide range of measures, placed more importance on effort than did men. However, only a new measure of more personalized effort beliefs, dubbed the Worker scale, uniquely explained gender differences in dispositional tendency to behaviorally self-handicap. The Worker scale also predicted academic performance, consistent with the notion that these effort beliefs would predict engagement in actual behavioral selfhandicaps that undermine performance.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/10394/1/McCrea_etal._2008_JRP.pdf"/> <dc:creator>McCrea, Sean M.</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>The worker scale : Developing a measure to explain gender differences in behavioral self-handicapping</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Steele, Nathan L.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Milner, Bridgett J.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Milner, Bridgett J.</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:16:37Z</dcterms:available> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:contributor>Hirt, Edward R.</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:issued>2008</dcterms:issued> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/10394/1/McCrea_etal._2008_JRP.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Hendrix, Kristin L.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
