Abstract : The report summarizes a second aspect of the behavioral research done on the 1963 American Mt. Everest Expedition, viz., a testing of hypotheses proposed by Theodore Newcomb concerning the processes through which emerge a set of stable relationships among a group of initial strangers. It also reports the results of relating predicted compatibility (predictions based on test results from the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation inventory) to self-rated compatibility. On the whole the Newcomb hypotheses were supported. Results regarding compatibility were negative. (Author)
