Complementarity of Interpersonal Behaviors in Dyadic Interactions
TLDR
Randomization tests of hypothesized order relations found that the behaviors exhibited during these interactions tended to occur in a circular pattern predicted by the interpersonal circumplex, indicating support for Leary's (1957) orientation of the control and affiliation dimensions of the interpersonalcircumplex and Carson's (1969) notion that dominant behavior induces submissive responses and friendly behavior encourages friendly responses.
