Clinton scored low on measures of prior foreign policy experience, as well as on LEAD measures of power (.16), affiliation (.10), ethnocentrism (.15), and distrust of others (.07). He scored high on cognitive complexity (.50), locus of control (.59), and self-confidence (.94). These scores place Clinton over three standard deviations lower in needs for power and ethnocentrism than the averages in the 94-world-leader data set. Clinton was also one standard deviation lower in distrust of others, but over one standard deviation higher than average in both his locus of control and self-confidence.
