ABSTRACT
Previous studies have shown that leadership rank, dominance-ascendance, and participation rank tend to be intercorrelated in leaderless discussion groups. An analysis of data gathered from groups who met either in the presence or the absence of an O shows that these variables are associated only in the observed groups. Riecken's and Orne's models of the experiment as a social situation were used to explain these results.
