I read, “a study by Del Jones of USA Today saying that flirtatious women get fewer raises, promotions”

A study by Del Jones of USA Today says flirtatious women get fewer raises and promotions.  This is a hard study for me to believe.  I question the sampled audience and the accuracy of the study.  If the study is accurate my assumptions are that managers are tip toeing around more flirtatious employees or that preconceived notions that flirty equals cheerleader equals stupid is in effect.  Three of the most impressive people I’ve ever worked with have been women between 24 and 34 years old, and they happen to be very attractive as well.  All this, in my opinion, is in an industry (utility) and field (electrical engineering) dominated by males.
