The best female student, the best male student – girls are still less inventive than boysPostulated in the literature discussing mechanisms of varied expectations and criteria of gratification towards students considering his/her sexual role finds its confirmation in the research by Dweck and Repucci (1973). The outcome points to the existence of behaviour among girls that is typical for helpless people. We can enumerate the following types of behaviour: low self-evaluation (especially in the sphere of intelligence), regarding boosting effort as utterly pointless, perceiving seeking constructive solutions in the case of failure as aimless, and lack of belief in their ability to control school events. Conversely, “inventive” characteristics and models were found among boys.The reference to the research quoted about potential modifications of the relations mentioned due to high level of school achievements. We are still allowed to presuppose that the best female students do not need to display helpless behaviour. My research seeks to verify the statement I have posited.
