Abstract : The study investigates the relation between leader and member intelligence under three conditions of experimentally created stress, and under varying degrees of leader anxiety. The results indicate that the leader's intelligence correlates with (that is, contributes to) group performance primarily in situations which are relatively free of stress or when the leader's anxiety is low, while his members contribute to group performance primarily under anxious leaders or in situations which are stressful or anxiety arousing for the leader.
