AuthorsFurnham, A., McClelland, A. and Mansi, A.
Abstract

This paper set out to examine the way people weigh information when making upward decisions as to who they would like as a boss. One hundred and sixty seven participants rank ordered 16 potential bosses in a 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 design that differentiated between the sex, age, level (high vs. average) IQ and EQ scores of possible candidates. Results of the within participants ANOVA showed no significant preference for gender or age of a boss but a strong preference for high EQ and IQ, with EQ more powerful that IQ. Significant interactions showed that participants favoured young, male bosses and old, female bosses over old, male bosses and young, female bosses. A between participant analysis showed as predicted, female over male respondents favoured a high EQ in their boss. The gender bias in selection committees may strongly influence the weighting given to different characteristics sought. This indicates the value of social skills and emotional intelligence at work.
