Musante et al. (1983) looked at component scores derived from the structured interview procedure. 31) components for male subjects. 23) components. In summary, desire for control and Type A personality are related to one another in predictable ways. The magnitude of the correlations suggests that people scoring high on one scale will tend to score high on the other. I interpret this correlation to mean that a high desire for control is one of the components or symptoms of the overall Type A behavior pattern.

I administered the two control subscales from the FIRO-B Scale, the Machiavellian IV Scale, and the OC Scale to an undergraduate sampie. The results of this unpublished study are shown in Table 2-6. The FIRO-B scales were related to desire for control in predictable ways.

Smith et al. 20 years, respectively. Again, the correlations indicate that the males in the sampies had high er DC scores than the females. Schönbach' s (1990) data with various German subjects uncovered similar gender differences among adult sampies.
