The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of certain personal traits of a selected group of first-level supervisors to the repuations for leadership behavior and supervisory effectiveness which the first-level supervisors had established with their superiors. Only those traits measured by the How Supervise Test, the Gordon Personal Profile, and an adjective scale were investigated. The hypothesis tested by the study was stated as follows: The first-level supervisor's reputationfor leadership behavior and supervisory effectiveness with his superior will be related to one or more of the measured traits to a statistically significant degree.
