The present study was designed to test the hypothesis that a significant relationship exists between self-concept discrepancies and expressed need for achievement.
A self-concept discrepancy score was obtained and a low and high discrepancy group was isolated.
Expressed need for achievement was measured by the use of the Thematic Apperception Test and scored according to the Atkinson method.
Mean comparisons of need achievement scores of subjects whose discrepancies between actual and ideal self-concept were in the upper or lower one~third of the distribution were found not to be significant at the 5 percent level of confidence.
