60 male college students participated in a level of aspiration experiment on the Minnesota Rate of Manipulation Test. Aspirations, confidence, and performance were found to be dependent, in part, upon whether the immediate experience was characterized by success or failure, and, in part, upon their sequence order. Correlations between least aspirations and confidence were so low as to be considered independent aspects of personality. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
