The study examined. in a 2 x 3 factorial design, the effects of leader persistence and leader behavior on evaluations of the leader and attributions of leadership. One hundred twenty-six Indian engineering undergraduates responded to one-page scenarios depicting leader persistence and leader behavior. They were randomly assigned to each of the treatment conditions, with 21 subjects per cell. Results indicated that both the evaluations of leader and attributions of leadership were significantly influenced by the inter- action between leader persistence and leader behavior .Certain main effects. as expected, of leader behavior and leader persistence were also observed. Implication of the findings for those in leadership roles are discussed. and directions for future research suggested.
