Attitudes and Values as Predictors of Military Performance.
Wilkins, Walter L.
Prediction of effectiveness in adjusting to military life has been reasonably successful by depending on such demographic variables as level of schooling attained, family background, and age, or such measured factors as intelligence; but most of the variance is still unaccounted for and should be found in motivational factors. The present study reports outcomes of the study of attitudes of Marines in basic training as related to later ratings of military adaptation. Eight references are included. (Author/LY)
