BEHAVIORAL AND PERSONALITY EXPECTATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH STATUS POSITIONS.
BORGATTA, EDGAR F.; EVANS, ROBERT R.
TO DETERMINE WHETHER STATUS-POSITIONS MAY BE CHARACTERIZED BY CERTAIN GENERAL BEHAVIORAL DISPOSITIONS AND PERSONALITY TRAITS, FACTOR ANALYSIS WAS EMPLOYED IN A STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIPS OF 52 STATUS-POSITIONS, INCLUDING SELECTED ETHNIC, OCCUPATIONAL, AGE, SEX, AND FAMILIAL CATEGORIES, WITH 28 PERSONALITY AND BEHAVIORAL CHARACTERISTICS, AS INDICATED BY THE RESPONSES (125 SETS OF RATINGS AND 115 SETS OF RANKINGS) OF A SELECTED SAMPLE OF COLLEGE STUDENTS, PRIMARILY FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN. FINDINGS INDICATED THAT CERTAIN BEHAVIORAL CHARACTERISTICS AND PERSONALITY TRAITS ARE CONSISTENTLY ATTRIBUTED TO PARTICULAR STATUS-POSITIONS INDEPENDENT OF METHOD (RATING OR RANKING), WITH LITTLE OR NO EFFECTS ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE FIVE ORDERS OF PRESENTATION USED. FOUR STATUS-POSITION FACTORS FOR BOTH THE RATINGS AND THE RANKINGS WERE INTERPRETED AND SCORED--LIKEABILITY, DEFIANCE, RESPONSIBILITY, AND EMOTIONALITY. PROFILES OF THE 52 STATUS-POSITIONS WERE DETERMINED, BASED ON MEDIAN-SPLIT DICHOTOMIES OF THESE FOUR FACTORS AS MEASURED FOR BOTH RATINGS AND RANKINGS. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM "MULTIVARIATE BEHAVIORAL RESEARCH," VOLUME 2, APRIL, 1967. (JK)
