Hypothesizes that a positive self-feeling compliance-gaining message would be more effective in producing target compliance among undergraduate student subjects than would a direct-request message when the target felt guilty, but that the opposite relationship would hold when the target was not feeling guilty. Finds that the data are, in the main, consistent with these predictions. (SC)
