This is a study of the relationship between certain psychological factors and managerial success among several farm couples. An interdisciplinary study in economics and psychology, its motivation in part originated with farm lending agencies in South Dakota. They observe that South Dakota farmers are requiring increasing amounts of credit. Since credit risk is essentially evaluating management, greater understanding of the human element in management is increasingly important, as competence in this area appears to involve personality and behavioral elements as well.
