Abstract : The field of interpersonal and self evaluation has obvious practical relevance to the morale and cohesiveness of groups, the selection of partners for given tasks, and the formation of friendship relations, involving all behavior which is affected by these interpersonal and self evaluations. The study has approached and interpreted the phenomena of 'attration and hostility' in terms of three theoretical frameworks. The report discusses these frameworks and evaluates them on the basis of experimental findings. (Author)
