The major purposes of this research were (1) to compare the level of fear of success (FOS) imagery in stories written by African American women with the level of FOS imagery in stories written by White women; (2) to compare FOS incidence in stories told by African American women in 1971 with that reported for a similar group in 1968; and (3) to explore the relationship of the career goals of African American college women to selected background, attitudinal, and motivational factors. The participants were 313 African American and 81 White senior and sophomore women selected from five predominantly Black colleges in the southeastern and middle Atlantic states. All were paid volunteers. Tests were administered in group settings at the various campuses. White women and African American women were tested separately by examiners of their own race. Four verbal projective cues were administered to elicit FOS imagery. An additional questionnaire was ad ministered to assess basic demographics, dimensions of career choice, and attitudes towards a chievement in women. Also included in some questionnaires were an attachment scale, measuring strength of current relationships, and a militancy scale assessing attitudes towards various aspects of militancy among African Americans. The Murray Archive holds additional analogue materials for this study (original paper data records from an additional 120 African American participants, based on an independent study conducted by a master's candidate, are also included in this collection).
