Abstract:

Sixty graduate students met periodically for 15 weeks in training groups. Midway, half of the men were counseled individually 1 to 1 12 hours by a peer from the other half. The counselees were the men most extreme in scores in self, interaction or task-orientation. The counselors were the remaining men. Counseling was devoted either to appraising past performance or to setting future goals. Generally, self-oriented students were significantly less likely to agree with their counselors as to what had been discussed in counseling and to particularly favor past performance appraisal over future goal setting.
