Abstract : Subjects under high or low fear were presented with a communication: these under high fear showed significantly greater change on topics both relevant and irrelevant to the source of fear. There was a nonsignificant tendency for first-born Ss to show more change. Fear manipulation was confirmed by 2 stress measures, Mood Adjective Check List and Palmar Sweat Index. (Author)
