Murray, Saundra Rice; Mednick, Martha Tamara Shuch
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 43, 6, 881-884, Dec 75

High-achievement women related luck, ability, and effort to outcome, whereas low-achievement-motivated women attributed outcome to task difficulty. Implications of these findings for the understanding of sex and race differences in achievement are discussed. (Author)
