Fear of Success.
Fear of success in a group of high school students (N=127) was studied, with research findings supporting the following generalizations: (1) high school students with an intermediate level of self-esteem have greater fear of success than those with high and low levels of self-esteem; (2) high school students with BSRI (Bem Sex Role Inventory) classifications of "androgynous" have greater fear of success than those with classifications of "undifferentiated"; (3) gender and age should be interpreted concurrently in examining subjects' fear of success; (4) the family structure in which high school students are living is not associated with fear of success; (5) employment status of high school students is not associated with fear of success; and (6) the population of high school students displays above average levels of fear of success. Six appendices present documentation and instruments used in this study; three tables present data and statistical analysis. Contains 18 references. (TS)
