The underrepresentation of women in the academy is not limited to STEM-fields, but instead generalizes to most fields that emphasize high intellectual ability. Despite the overlap in subject matter between psychology and philosophy, there is a marked gender imbalance across the two fields. There are many fewer women in philosophy and many fewer men in psychology. The purpose of the current study is to pilot self-report scales that allow for tests of hypothesized explanations for the gender imbalances across these two fields. We will measure stereotypical beliefs about gender and brilliance, internal beliefs about abilities, gender differences in interest and combativeness, beliefs and preferences regarding work-life balance, and beliefs about the status of each field as regards these features.
