The purpose of this research was to investigate the relationship between self-monitoring and leader emergence across two types of group tasks. Seventy-eight males and 66 females participated in same-sex, three-person groups assigned at random to either a modified brainstorming task or an anagrams task condition. Subjects' self-monitoring scores were measured prior to their group participation. High self-monitors emerged more frequently as leaders than did low self-monitors in female brainstorming groups but not in male brainstorming groups. The relationship between self-monitoring and leader emergence in male and female anagrams groups was not statistically significant. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
