F-Scale in Adorno, 1950 to test hypothesized values differences between the fear of failure FF individual as defined by the HP system, and the need for achievement n. Ach. individual as defined by McClelland et al. 1953. Sex interactions were also studied. Forteen of sixteen directional predictions were bourne out for the FF male predicting to these values scales.
