Present study explored relationships between interpersonal needs and leadership styles in superiorsubordinate context. Interpersonal behaviour defined by inclusion and affection dimensions of FIRO-B related more strongly to participative and nurturant dimensions than task behaviour dimension of leaders, while control expressed behaviour failed to show any relationship with task-orientation. Extroversion based on total scores of expressed components of FIRO-B demonstrated significant influence on task orientation, participative and nurturant leadership dimensions. However, inclusion and affection continued to sustain similar trend of relationship with the participative and nurturant dimensions, whereas control expressed behaviour partly confirmed relationship with task orientation being a fragment of nurturancetask dimension.
