The purpose of this study was to investigate possible self-concept differences between fraternity and selected nonfraternity members. The subjects for the study were thirty fraternity and thirty selected nonfraternity members at Fort Hays Kansas State College. All subjects were administered the Leary Interpersonal checklist. The nonfraternity group was selected by using an experimenter constructed attitude scale which was designed to indicate dislike for a fraternity. To the data obtained on the ICL form the two groups a standard 2x2 chi-square was applied to statistically evaluate the obtained values. The results are not statistically significant and do not indicate that self-concepts differences exist between these two groups. It was concluded that this study does not show differences either because they do not exist, the Interpersonal Checklist is too insensitive to detect self-concept differences between these two groups, or there was a failing in the experimental design.
