The present research was an attempt to replicate in Pakistan Horner's ( 1969) findings about fear of success, which she considered as the basis of sex differences in achievement motivation. One hundred male and female post-graduate students wrote stories to randomly assigned cues concerning success of a male or female medical student. Content analysis showed that the majority of stories contained "fear of success" imagery but there was no significant difference among males and females regarding this imagery in their stories.
