Abstract:

IN Leadership, Psychology and Organizational Behavior Bass, 1960a, we conceived of three types of group members, self, interaction and taskoriented. It was argued that attempts to lead under specified circumstances would be different among these three types of individuals. The SIT Inventory, consisting of forced choice questions about personal preferences, values and projections, was constructed as a device for screening populations for samples of these idealized types. This report dealt with the construction of the SIT, its reliability, norms and validity. Also included are results of four pilot projects representing applications of the SIT to testing specific hypotheses about the behavior of these idealized types in groups. Author
