Social Desirability, Expectancy, and Success Failure Oriented Behavior in Children
Kopfstein, Joan Held
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 35, 3, 428, Dec '70
It was expected that children with high as compared to low SD would state overly cautious bids suggesting low expectancy for success, and would adopt a failure avoiding pattern of Rotter's level of aspiration task. The results support the hypotheses on SD and cautious, failure avoiding behavior. Age must be carefully controlled. (CJ)
