|Abstract:||<p>The work reported on here attempts to explore a prediction derived from an extension of J. Kimberly's Theory of Status Equilibration. The extension implies that if status aspiration is high enough a person with low ability and a demanding task will seek to lncrease the discrepancy between status derived from ability and status derived from his task function.</p> <p>An experiment to test this prediction was designed and conducted by the author.</p>|
