Sex Domination of Occupations and the Tendencies to Approach and Avoid Success and Failure.
Intons-Peterson, Margaret Jean; Johnson, Holly
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v4 n4 p526-46 Sum 1980

Success-approach and failure-avoidance imagery in the stories increased as the current male dominance of the occupation increased. Success-approach imagery appeared more often in females' stories.
