DeBerry, Stephen T.
Social Behavior and Personality, v17 n1 p67-80 1989
Investigated changes in how people like themselves and their partners after working together. Findings from eight male pairs and eight female pairs revealed that competitors liked themselves and their partners less than non-competitors (p<.01). Significant sex differences, especially a male "loser effect" were also found. (Author/NB)
