Administered the ABV (Amsterdam Biographical Questionnaire) and the LOS (Leadership Concept Scale) to 98 students. The directions indicated that the Ss need not comply with the requirement to complete the LOS. 21 Ss failed to avail themselves of this permission and were labeled "refusers" (A). Their reactions on the ABV were compared with 46 "non-refusers" (B). Female A Ss scored significantly lower than female B Ss (p < .02) in neurosis and social extraversion. Both male and female A Ss scored significantly lower (p < .01) in neurosis based on somatic conditions. It is concluded that "refusers" possessed more confidence, characteristic of a less neurotic condition, than did "non-refusers."
