Biographical Differences between Navy Recruits Grouped by Mental Level, Racial Identification and Career Intention.
Cory, Charles H.
The study is part of a research effort to provide instruments for identifying the aptitudes and abilities most useful to the Navy in Mental Level 4 personnel, and to identify duties most likely to be successfully performed by such personnel. The report describes an interim analysis of a biographical information form developed for predicting effectiveness of Mental Level 4 men. Correlations between mental level and biographical question responses were significant for 163 questions, but were generally low. Intelligence was most associated with academic experiences, attitudes, and aptitudes; and least associated with areas involving job tasks or social activities. Negro respondents and respondents wishing to re-enlist differed significantly from the total group on the characteristics studies. Use of these data for improved prediction of Category 4 performance will be covered in later reports. (Author/LY)
