Most girls are taught to avoid risk and failure. We’re taught to smile pretty, play it safe, get all A’s. Boys, on the other hand, are taught to play rough, swing high, crawl to the top of the monkey bars and then just jump off headfirst. And by the time they’re adults and whether they’re negotiating a raise or even asking a girl out on a date, they’re habituated to take risk after risk. They are rewarded for it.
