This study examined men's and women's leadership aspirations and the roles of psychological variables that affect them. The participants were 355 college students at a predominantly white, Midwest co-educational liberal arts college. Gender role orientation, connectedness needs, and fear of negative evaluation accounted for a significant amount of the variance in predicting college women's leadership aspirations, whereas connectedness needs and self-esteem accounted for a significant amount of the variance in predicting college men's leadership aspirations.
