Research on Fear of Success: Full Annotated Bibliography.
Tresemer, David
This bibliography gives 186 citations for 155 studies using Horner's recent construct of fear of success (FOS). For each of the studies (many of which are available at the Fear of Success Collection, Sophia Smith Library, Smith College), information is given concerning (a) the number and sort of subject sample used in the study; (b) details of the measurement of FOS, including test materials, date of measurement, proportion of males and females showing FOS imagery, and correlates of FOS score; and (c) experimental manipulations where FOS was an independent or dependent variable. The descriptions are strongly data oriented, inlcuding summary statistics (means and variances) where appropriate for comparisons between studies and also for secondary analysis. This comparison is encouraged by the use of effect-size indexes. A section is given on the scoring of success avoidant thema in responses to verbal story cues as an introduction to the practical aspect of assessing a personality disposition from story imagery. The uses of Horner's particular concept of fear of success in professional papers are briefly discussed, and the viewpoints that Horner's work has been cited to substantiate have been summarized for over 70 such papers.
