Abstract:The interpersonal construal styles of 184 females classified into moderate or extreme levels of Leary's (1957) eight interpersonal personality types were compared. Women representing the various extreme octants were predicted to misconstrue a set of interpersonal stimuli as complementary to their own interpersonal style, while moderate subjects were not predicted to demonstrate such distortions in interpersonal construal. Results failed to confirm the major hypotheses, with all moderate and extreme groups construing the stimuli in essentially the same fashion. Difficulties with the experimental paradigm and subject classification procedures are discussed, and theoretical refinements are proposed aimed at a more idiographic approach to predicting biases in interpersonal construal.
