Gender & Leadership

Gender & Leadership Mindbugs Test

Why are we unconsciously looking for like-minded people and are others less visible as a result? With this online test, we investigate whether both men and women have unconscious biases in the field of gender and leadership. This test measures how biased you are in your unconscious. Discover for yourself how you see leadership linked to men and women. And whether your unconscious preference is consistent with how you think about male and female leaders.

This gender & leadership mind bug test is based on research from Harvard University, McKinsey & Company and Direction. The mindbugstest Gender & LeadershipEsther Mollema - Mrs. Mindbugs gives you insight into how you choose, rationally and emotionally, men and women for leadership positions. The test challenges you to make quick choices and analyzes how you do this. It will take you eight minutes to complete the test. The test also shows whether your conscious and unconscious judgments match and what effect this has on your decisions. How do you score compared to the many thousands of participants who have already gone before you?

The test and the personal report is available in Dutch and English. The costs for an individual test and personal report are €45.  We offer workshops, webinars and key notes on mindbugs and the outcome of the mindbugstests in English and Dutch.

You notice very well in the training that people think in traditional patterns. The test showed, for example, that I myself also have a slight preference for male leadership and that I also have prejudices about women who would not be able to drive.
