SOME DETERMINANTS OF AN INDIVIDUAL'S ESTEEM FOR HIS LEAST PREFERRED CO-WORKER: AN ATTITUDINAL ANALYSIS,

Pagination or Media Count:
This paper reports a study designed to test the assumption that the LPC score can best be considered as an attitude score. One hundred seventy-nine male Ss listed what they believed to be the characteristics of their least preferred co-worker, indicated how strongly they held these beliefs, and evaluated each of the characteristics. In addition each S rated his least preferred co-worker on Fiedlers Standard Esteem Scale, and responded to several personality questionnaires. Through a consideration of each Ss beliefs about his least preferred co-worker, estimated LPC scores were computed, and these estimated scores were correlated with the obtained LPC scores. The results provide strong support for the conceptualization of the LPC score as an attitude score. Further, a consideration of the types of beliefs elicited by high and low LPC Ss suggested that these individuals have markedly different types of least preferred co-workers. Some of the implications of this latter finding are discussed. Author
