The Cumulative Record of Research on Fear of Success
Several questions have been addressed repeatedly in research in the area of “fear of success” (FOS). The most frequently studied has been the gender difference in FOS, especially since Homer concluded on the basis of her results that American women feared success and men did not. Other questions frequently addressed by researchers interested in “fear of success” involve changes in FOS levels over the last decade, gender differences in responses to a cue depicting an achieving female, the correlates of FOS, and the relationship of FOS to performance criteria in different kinds of situations (e.g., competition with men).
