The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship, if any, between scores on the Affiliation scale of the Edwards Personal Preference Schedule and n Aff scores from Thematic Apperception Test stories. Subjects were undergraduate college students who participated in the research in connection with an introductory psychology course. All subjects wrote stories for four TAT pictures and all took the EPPS. TAT stories were scored for affiliation need. It was determined, by both correlational and chi square analyses, that there was a significant relationship between EPPS Affiliation scores and TAT need affiliation scores for both the male group and the combined group. No significant relationship was found for the female group.
