ABSTRACT: Researchers studied the power orientations of female managers as related to career choice, education level, age, and years as a manager. The questionnaire includes six orientations to power: 1) power as good; 2) power as resource dependency; 3) power as instinctive drive; 4) power as political; 5) power as charisma; and 6) power as control and autonomy. Discerning power may explain how one perceives the managerial position.
