What a wonderful interview Dana. I particularly liked your recommendations for female academics. Indeed, most women learn about the competent/nice dilemma – i.e., you can *either* be seen as competent *or* as nice – the hard way. It is obviously is deeply rooted in Fiske’s competence/warmth stereotype model. Ideally, we would like to change these perceptions fundamentally, so that the combination is seen as natural, not contradictory, and you can be both super-competent and super-nice. I think you are a role model in achieving this :-)
