The Motive to Avoid Success and Its Effects on Performance in School-Age Males and Females
Romer, Nancy
Developmental Psychology, 11, 6, 689-699, Nov 75
Males and females in grades 5-11 were asked to take a Thematic Apperception-like measure and to perform a series of tasks in competitive and non-competitive conditions. The results suggest that the motive to avoid success affects males and young females differently than it does older females. (JMB)
