Wish, Peter A.; Hasazi, Joseph E.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, 20, 2, 127-131, Mar 73
When the fear of failure was greater than the need for achievement, subjects chose majors with either a low or high probability of success. When need for achievement was the greater of the motives, subjects chose majors with a low or high probability of success when the self was used as the standard of judgment but chose majors with an intermediate probability of success when others were used as the standard.
