The study could have implications outside sports

Men are more competitive than women, study finds


Researchers have discovered that male athletes are more driven by the desire to beat the competition than female athletes. Scientists at Grand Valley State University, Michigan, studied elite runners. They found the men tended to have greater competitive drive than

Sportswomen tend to be more committed to aspects of their lives outside sport - such as their academic studies - than their male counterparts, the researchers say.

However, the researchers say that there can be a great deal of individual variability with some women actually showing greater competitive drive than most male athletes. Many reasons have been suggested to explain why women remain poorly represented in senior positions at large companies.

Now, a new study may shed light on workplace dynamics, by claiming that while men enjoy competition in the office, women like to be part of a team.

The results suggest than men have a dimmer view of their colleagues’ ability than women and were therefore more keen on competing to be rewarded for their own work, rather than that of a team’s.

Researchers from CNRS-GATE in Lyon and the University of California, analysed the behaviour of both sexes when the study participants were asked to choose between being paid on their individual performance or as part of a team.

They found that less than 11 per cent of men opted for team payment, in comparison to 44 per cent of women.
These individuals tend to be far less common in women´s sport, they said.

The study could have implications for other areas outside sport, such as in the workplace where greater gender diversity could bring advantages.

The researchers, whose study is published in the journal PeerJ, assessed the competitiveness of 1,147 long distance runners competing in the 5,000 metres in the US National Collegiate Athletic Association.

They surveyed each runners motivation for participating, their training volume and their desire to compete at an elite level after college.
