Martin Schneider asked himself a simple question: Why is it only women who see sexism everywhere?

As a guy, Martin didn’t understand how sexism can affect somebody’s productivity… until he experienced it for himself.

Here, Martin lays out the problem. Actually, Nicole’s problem.

Needless to say, Martin did NOT like being Nicole…

And therein lies the “invisible advantage”

Guys, this isn’t to say your job isn’t tough or that people treat YOU differently. This is just one guy doing a test at his company.

Still, one has to think that if the difference is THIS pronounced after working with numerous clients over the course of two weeks, something has to be up.
