Male and female responses to the Fear Survey Schedule-III (Wolpe and Lang, 1964) were factor analyzed. For males, factors expressing fear of aggression, travel, harmless animals, bodily insults and unreality emerged. For females, factors expressing fear of bodily insult, social rejection, harmless animals, public display, aggression, disability and confinement emerged. These data suggest both breadth and clinical relevance to the fear survey as an assessment technique. The importance of separating male and female data in factor analytical studies is emphasized. © 1972.
