Abstract : An experiment was conducted investigating the effects of prior social setting, type of arousal and birth order on affiliative preference in a working situation. Being with others prior to a fear or anxiety producing manipulation was related to affiliative desire. The results were discussed with respect to their implications for the usefulness of social comparison theory in explaining social behavior under stress. (Author)
