If you filled in the gaps with “he”/”his” then you probably have “Gender Bias.”
Gender bias describes our tendency to assign specific behaviors and characteristics to a particular genders without supporting evidence. In this case, the description leaned towards “masculine” traits.
In an interview setting, a man might be rewarded for demonstrating these behaviors while women might be punished for demonstrating the exact same behaviors.
