ACCURACY OF INTERPERSONAL PERCEPTION--A FUNCTION OF SUPERORDINATE ROLE.
BRUMBAUGH, ROBERT B.
ONE ASPECT OF THE PERCEPTUAL ACCURACY OF STUDENT TEACHERS AND THEIR SUPERVISORS IN JUDGING THEIR INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS WAS EXPLORED. A FIELD STUDY OF 40 STUDENT TEACHERS AND THEIR PUBLIC SCHOOL SUPERVISING TEACHERS EXPLORED THE POSSIBILITY OF SUBORDINATE ROLE BEING A CORRELATE TO THE ACCURACY OF THEIR INTERPERSONAL PERCEPTION. AT THE END OF 6 WEEKS OF WORKING CONTACT, THE SUBJECTS WERE ADMINISTERED THE "FIRO-B" SCALE INTENDED TO MEASURE THE DEGREE TO WHICH THE SUBJECT WANTS TO RECEIVE INCLUSION, CONTROL, AND AFFECTION. THE SUBJECTS WERE ASKED TO COMPLETE THE SCALE ONCE TO REVEAL THEIR FEELINGS AND ONCE TO REACT AS THEY THOUGHT THEIR RESPECTIVE SUPERVISOR OR STUDENT TEACHER WOULD REACT. ANALYSIS OF THE DATA SHOWED THAT SUPERVISING TEACHERS WERE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE ACCURATE THAN STUDENT TEACHERS IN ESTIMATING THE PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTROL NEEDS OF THEIR COUNTERPARTS. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT FOR A SUPERORDINATE TO SUCCESSFULLY PERFORM THE ROLE, THAT PERSON MUST PERCEPTUALLY SELECT ONLY THOSE CUES FROM INTERACTION WITH IMMEDIATE SUBORDINATES THAT PERTAIN TO THE CONTROL NEEDS OF THE SUBORDINATES.
