  3. The incidence of homicide will be associated with the need for achievement and the need for power (161).Lester, David - National motives and psychogenic death rates, 1968 - 3 Variables

    This study investigates possible relationships between the need for achievement and power (as measured in folktales) with rates of suicide and homicide in preindustrial societies. Analysis suggests that homicide is not associated with either the need for achievement or power, but suicide is positively associated with the need for power.
