Abstract : A self-report inventory was compared with a situational test as a predictor of the verbal behavior of individual members of small interpersonal skills training groups. The self-report predictor was a published instrument, the HIM-B (Hill Interaction Matrix). The situational test was a tape-recorded simulation of a small group meeting in which S imagined himself as a member and responded verbally at designated intervals. Subjects' responses were recorded and later rated on the Hill Interaction Matrix (HIM). Each predictor provided a profile of scores in the 16 cells of the HIM; these profiles were correlated with the criterion behavior profile for each of the Ss. (Author)
