Abstract

Recognising that practical intelligence plays an important role in an individual's job success, we explore whether differences in practical intelligence exist between male and female workers in the ICT industry. Taking an interpretive approach we found patterns and themes in the responses to workplace scenarios of ICT workers in three organizations from the viewpoint of gender: Assertiveness, Ethical Behaviour and Expectation of Rewards, Propensity for Communication and Achievement vs. Ascription Orientation.
