    The Iowa study was the first to analyze leadership using scientific methodology and they showed that different styles of leadership can produce different reactions from the same or similar groups. A group of boys were submitted to three different types of leadership (authoritarian, democratic, laissez fair). These styles were manipulated to show their effects on satisfaction and frustration/aggression. The authoritarian group reacted either aggressively or apathetically, the laissez faire group produced the greatest number of aggressive acts, and the democratic fell in between. The vast majority preferred the democratic leader to the other two.
