dc.description.abstractThis study examines personality and biographical data gathered from a group of information systems managers in an attempt to determine if these managers are more like their subordinates or their peers. A group of thirty-seven subjects employed in high-level computer-related managerial positions completed a survey designed to measure Murray's Variables of Personality and a biodata questionnaire. The findings were compared to published results from similiar studies conducted on computer programmers and systems analysts and on ether managers. The research shows that, in terms of Murray's Variables of Personality, the study group of Information Systems Managers had more in common with other managers than they did with programmers and systems analysts. Additionally, based on the results of a biographical inventory developed to measure a perception of past success and confidence in the future, these men shared a feeling of self-confidence and a positive outlook with other management professional.
