Men negotiate 58.8% of the time, while women negotiate only 16.7% of the time. Only 12.5 % of women with Masters degrees negotiate their salaries while 51.5 of men do. Women ask for what they want only 3% of the time, while men ask 23% of the time. Women are typically prescribed roles to take care of others before they take care of themselves, and are expected to see things from others’ perspectives. Negotiation is problem solving.
