Hola James

That is because here "un poco" is acting as an adverb, not an adjective, so it doesn't change to agree with the gender. Same as when we say: es muy picarón/picarona; es bastante picarón/ picarona; also "es un poco picarón/picarona".

I hope it clarified it.

Saludos

Thanks Inma.  I always have trouble distinguishing adverbs and adjectives.  But your answer makes perfect sense.  And I knew this rule just had trouble applying it.
