Abstract : One hundred and three Bucknell University males in an introductory psychology course were given a modified form of the Thematic Apperception Test, which was objectively scored for Hostile Press (Birney et al., 1964). A questionnaire was administered to obtain the S's scores on a number of family relations and socioeconomic variables. The coefficient of multiple correlation statistic (Guilford, 1956) was utilized to obtain significant relationships between HP and combinations of the following variables: family independence, lack of parental over-insistence on achievement, lack of parental severity of discipline, parents' sympathetic encouragement of achievement, father's occupation and father's education.
