This study examined differences between culturally based fraternity men, social fraternity men, and non-affiliated college men on consciousness of self and congruence. The data used in this study included 1698 undergraduate men, representing 46 different higher education institutions. Data used in this study was collected in the spring of 2006 as part of the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership. Analysis of the data was conducted using a multivariate analysis of covariance to compare independent variable group differences across the two dependent variables, while taking quasi pre-test measures for both items into account as covariates. Significant differences among culturally based fraternity men, social fraternity men and non-affiliated men were found on the combination of dependent variables. Further analyses revealed culturally based fraternity men scored lower than social fraternity men and non-affiliated men on both consciousness of self and congruence.
