Process data from an investigation of the relationship between relative social status and interpersonal influence in small group interactions support and refine conclusions derived in an earlier report employing aggregate analyses. A simple process model is presented and data evaluated in light of expected results generated by the model. Discrepancies between expected and attained results are discussed, and interpretations provided for further experimental evaluation. A reward-cost or exchange paradigm is proposed as a necessary theoretical additon for adequate undestanding of status-influence relationships.
