25 male volunteers from an introductory psychology course participated in 6 five-man discussions, with each group containing men who had not met previously. At the end of each session, the members of each group were asked to nominate a discussion leader for a hypothetical second meeting. On the basis of their results, the writers conclude that “leadership status seems to be rather highly consistent despite the situational changes involved.” They caution that their findings cannot be generalized to all types of groups.
