It was hypothesized that a significant correlation exists between a dormitory leader’s (DL’s) self-acceptance and his acceptance by residents (RESs) under his supervision. Leary’s Interpersonal Check List (ICL) was used to assess both variables. Self-acceptance for each of 37 DLs was defined as the discrepancy between self and ideal self ratings. RESs’ discrepancy scores between a DL and the ideal DL were averaged to determine a DL’s acceptance by RESs. Discrepancies were measured by (a) code/discrepancy score, and (b) the linear distance between summary points. Neither methods of measurement provided confirmation of the hypothesis. Several sex differences were noted which may have important implications for research.
