Dear Poll: Are you Comfortable Asking for More Money in the Work Place?

According to a new study at Carnegie Mellon University, reported in the Washington Post, women were far less likely compared to men to negotiate their salary, especially when the decider was a man. On the flip side, when a woman was the decider, she tended to penalize both men and women equally who negotiated their salary.

While many people believe men are simply more aggressive than women in the workplace, the difference in negotiating salary isn't necessary because women don't know how to haggle per se, it's more that they are afraid of being perceived as the "not so nice-girl."

Since women have a strong presence in the work place, what I want to know is, do you feel comfortable negotiating your salary with your boss or new potential employer?
