A new study has found that women are less likely than men to ask for extensions to complete projects with adjustable deadlines at work or school.

Compared to men, women were more concerned that they would be burdening others by asking for an extension. Perceived burden and emotions like shame, embarrassment and guilt explained why women experienced more discomfort with asking for extensions than men did.
