Relationship between Sex-Role Orientation and Fear of Success.
Many studies have attempted to relate sex role to other personality dimensions such as fear of success with conflicting results. The Bem Sex-Role Inventory and the Fear of Success Scale were administered to 101 college women. A significant relationship was found between their scores on the two instruments. Results showed that sex-reversed females experienced significantly less fear of success than did their counterparts who had not adopted male characteristics as part of their personality dynamics. While these results support conclusions reached by a number of authors, they differ from others. Differences among the scales themselves may account for conflicting results. (JAC)
