"Writing in The Guardian, Tim Adams cites a study showing that in a survey of 2.7 million investors which found in 2008-2009, men were much more likely than women to sell stocks at price lows. Men were confident they could make accurate assessments about the future based on short-term financial news. Women, the study surmises, were more likely to acknowledge when they didn't know something and lost less money than men did."
I definitely recommend you read the article. It is better than the excerpt above. :)
