Unfortunately, it's the ones who are hypercompetitive who end up in the
positions of power. That's how they got there. I see lots of men who are
very pleasant and helpful, but you're right. The higher you go, the worse
it gets. In addition, I think that the men in positions of power are
older, and hence, more "old-fashioned."
