Abstract:

Undergraduate Ss rated a set of hypothetical task groups in terms of favorableness and liking. These groups varied according to a member-to- leader affective relations and b member-to-member affective relations. It was found that, although both types of relations substantially influenced Ss ratings, the member-to-leader relations were far the more important. Finally, subject characteristics task vs. relations orientation controlled a small, though significant, proportion of the variance in the favorableness ratings.
