The purpose of this study was to explore how family types clustered based on the intra system dynamics explained housewive's managerial behavior. The data were collected by means of questionnaire distributed to a stratified sample of 544 housewives in Seoul who lived with husband and children. The questionnaires included FACES Ⅱ and Ⅲ, Communication Scale, Managerial behavior Scale and Life Satisfaction Scale. Frequency, percentile, mean, correlation, factor analysis, cluster analysis, One-way ANOVA with Scheffe test, and multiple regression were used to analyze the data. This study had resulted in three major findings. The first was that families were clustered by four types, named structed-separated family, flexible-connected family, change oriented emashed, and rigid-disengaed family. The second finding was that a difference in managerial behavior was found among four types of family. Housewives whose family were more connected each other and adapted more easily to changing situations showed better managerial behavior. The last one was that the managerial behavior of housewives was better explained by family types than socio-demographic variables. The recommendations for future research and the better ways to lead effective managerial behavior were suggested.
