Abstract : A complex decision-making environment was used to examine the relationship between experimentally-induced success and Ss' perceptions of success for cognitively simple and cognitively complex Ss. In each case a significant linear relationship between induced success and perceived success was obtained. In addition, higher order trends suggest tentatively that success may constitute a multidimensional, rather than a unidimensional, phenomenon. (Author)
