Investigated S. R. Strong's prediction of the existence of 3 dimensions of perceived counselor behavior: expertness, attractiveness, and trustworthiness. Films of interviews given by C. Rogers, A. Ellis, and F. Perls were watched by 202 Ss, who rated each counselor on 36 bipolar scales. Ratings were then factor-analyzed separately for each counselor. Results support the existence of the hypothesized dimensions for Rogers and Perls but only 2 dimensions for Ellis. Implications of results for counseling and further research are discussed.
