Abstract:

When United Nations delegates were asked to mark a questionnaire probing matters concerning the United Nations system and international affairs, different behavioral patterns emerged within a cooperative group of delegates. Delegates generally seemed positive in regard to wishes and perceptions. The questionnaire scores were related to the predictors factors calculated from attributes concerning the respondents home states and the two factors development and authoritarianism was observed. High scores were related to negative questionnaire responses. These findings appear to have considerable relevance for notions developed under the concepts of attribute and social field theory.
