187 male academic staff members read a low- or high-threat (freedom restricting) description of measures for the preferential treatment of women in job selection for academic staff functions. The high-threat condition evoked more psychological reactance than the low-threat condition. Ss with high self-esteem manifested a more negative attitude in the high-threat than in the low-threat condition. The expectation that lecturers would manifest more resistance than professors to preferential treatment of women was not supported.
