The paper experimentally examined Fiedlers 1972 hypothesis that relationship-motivated high LPC and task-motivated low LPC persons differ in their responses to favorable and unfavorable leadership situations. Subjects were asked to react to role-played, pre-recorded leadership situations which varied in their degree of situational favorability. The leaders verbal behavior was recorded and classified as to its interpersonal or task relevance.
