Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate selected physical educators' perceptions of leader behavior of the woman administrator in physical education. In addition the study was concerned with the influence of the sex of the respondents in regard to their perceptions of the leader behavior of such an administrator. A total of 129 respondents from eight selected colleges and universities participated in the study. A 64-item Q-sort was administered to the respondents. Respondents sorted the statements along a continuum from "most like" to "least like" the woman administrator according to their perception of her leader behavior. Statement content represented Stogdill's concept of leader behavior dimensions: Initiating Structure with its subcategories of initiation of structure and production emphasis; and Consideration with its subcategories of consideration and tolerance of uncertainty. The structured Q-sort was composed of statements representing positive and negative orientation.
