Two questionnaires which examine the affiliation need in four groups of situations were administered to 800 Israeli subjects. No differences were found between first- and later-borns in their tendency to associate with others, while the results show significant interaction between sex and specific situational factors. Women prefer the presence of others more than men under threatening conditions and prefer to be alone in situations which entail concentration and while in unpleasant moods. The findings suggest the usefulness of an interactional approach in analyzing group and individual differences.
