Abstract

This is a report on a study designed to make pouter exercise as defined in Systemic Dynamic Social Theory empirically measurable. The specific definition is critically contrasted with other definitions found in the current literature. Observations made in a college newspaper office furnish examples of interaction which do or do not involve power exercise as well as examples of interactions which cannot be satisfactorily classified. The technique, developed so far, is outlined, potential bases of error are examined, and suggestions are made for the possible further improvement of the technique.
