This study examined the effects of teacher likability on student compliance. Thirty undergraduate students participated in this study. The participants were given a description of a fictitious college professor. One group read a description of a likable professor. The other read a description of an unlikable professor. They were then asked to comply with the professor's request for input on a personal project. It was hypothesized that students
would comply more with the request of a teacher described as likable. Compliance was measured by counting the number of words used in each participant's response. An independent samples t-test was used to analyze the data and did not show a significant difference between groups.
