I suspect that many reading this research will find in it evidence that men are somehow just more suited to risk taking and thus are appropriately over-represented in business, government and the professions without stopping to consider where exuberant risk-taking has gotten us in the last few years - the collapse of the financial markets, two wars... But I don't really think this study is at this point offering enough evidence of causation (let alone whether risk-taking taken alone is an invariably desirable quality) to make much of this - to either prefer male market participants or to blame them.
