Abstract : Twenty-two males and thirty females, students in an introductory psychology class, were administered the TAT - Fantasy slides from the Hostile Press (HP) system (Birney et al., 1961, 1962), the Allport-Vernon-Lindzey, S<TUDY OF Values (1960) and the Levinson-Sanford et al. F-Scale (in Adorno, 1950) to test hypothesized values differences between the fear of failure (FF) individual as defined by the HP system, and the need for achievement (n. Ach.) individual as defined by McClelland et al. (1953). Sex interactions were also studied. Forteen of sixteen directional predictions were bourne out for the FF male predicting to these values scales. Results pointed to the similarity of attitudinal patterns between FF males and n. Ach. females. The implications of the findings were discussed and further research proposed. (Author)
