Abstract:

Multiple correlation analyses were carried out with 44 variables, 43 of which were selected from scales of the Strong Vocational Interest Blank, the MMPI, the TAT, the Guilford-Zimmerman Temperament Survey, the Leadership Opinion Questionnaire, the Ghiselli Self-Description Inventory, the F Scale, and test of Personnel Problems, Practical Judgment, and Imaginary Evenst grade point average was the other variable. The study was designed to assess whether or not these variables were related to the subjects being rated as desirable or as undesirable to have as a boss. 135 men who were candidates for the Masters in Business Administration degree were used as subjects. The best and only stable predictor of the number of times a student is rated by his peers as desirable to have as a boss is the grade point average earned in the two year MBA program.
