Abstract

Guided by the empathizing-systemizing theoretical framework, this study found that women college students had higher empathy scores than men. Women had lower likelihoods of majoring in engineering because not only was empathy negatively associated with choosing engineering majors, but engineering was perceived as one of the disciplines having lowest empathy level.
