Article on predictions and gender February 23, 2017 6:41 AM   Subscribe

I'm trying to find an article I'm pretty sure I saw on here in the last year or so about the gender differences in predictions of the future but my search fu is failing me.

I think it was based on an analysis of the accuracy of male and female predications from the early 20th century. Essentially the men had predicted fairly outlandish tech that didn't come to pass while the woman made pretty accurate social predictions.

Is it this one? Not quite what you mentioned but refers to "We predicted cell phones, but not women in the workplace."
