Abstract

Fear of success can be a barrier in improving individual performance. Earlier studies found that social support predict fear of success negatively, however only little research about it among female police officers especially in Jakarta. This study aims to empirically examine the influence of social support on fear of success among female police officers. This research used a quantitative method with 50 female police officers as a sample which has following characteristics; married, minimum rank Second Police Inspector Adjutant (Aipda) and domicile in Jakarta. Purposive sampling technique was used in this study.  Social support was measured using a social support scale based on forms of social support from Sarafino and Smith (2011) consisting of 43 items with an alpha value of 0.963, while fear of success was measured using a fear of success scale based on fear of success’s aspects from Shaw and Costanzo (1982) consisting of 37 items with an alpha value of 0.943. Data analysis was performed using simple regression analysis with a significance value of 0,000 (p <0.01). This study shows that social support has a very significant influence on fear of success. The correlation coefficient between social support and fear of success is - 0.759, which means that social support has a negative relationship with fear of success. In addition, the value of R² of 0.575 indicates that social support affects fear of success by 57.5%.
