Guys, when you see a doctor, are you totally honest about your symptoms and lifestyle habits? You may NOT be if your doctor’s a man. Rutgers researchers found men who buy into the stereotype that they’re supposed to be tough, brave and strong tend to believe male doctors are more competent. But tough guys also avoid showing weakness to other men, so they’re much less likely, to be honest with male doctors. But men who bit the bullet and saw a female doctor were much more honest. Because they felt showing vulnerability and admitting weakness to a woman didn’t diminish their status as a man.
