Abstract : From both observational and sociometric data, seven criteria of emergent small group leadership were obtained. The relationships between each of these and 42 psychological scales from tests including the MMPI, Strong Vocational Interest Blank, and the Guilford-Zimmerman Temperament Survey, were examined by constructing, by multiple regression techniques, equations to predict each criteria from some subset of the 42 predictors. When the predicted score and the actual score for each criteria was correlated, no equation led to an r signi,icantly different from zero. The subjects, graduate students in business administration, were in either one of 10 groups of 4 men each or in one of 15 groups of 5 men each. (Author)
