  • Yes, being technically competent in our society is often associated with a nerdy look and demeanor.  If someone looks too polished, too good looking then they are perceived to be in sales instead of a technical role. That's one of the reasons some women in technology struggle, unless of course they fit geeky-looking profile.  Adding glasses always helps
