Background and Situational Confidence; Their Relation to Performance Effectiveness. Professional Paper No. 22-68.
Boyles, Wiley R.
Inventories designed to measure confidence in dangerous situations were administered to about 3,000 potential Army aviation warrant officers from January to December 1967. These paper-and-pencil inventories are based on a clinical-experimental fractional anticipatory response conceptualization of reactions to the psychological stresses of combat. Military performances of the men are subjected to longitudinal analysis to determine the relationship of scores on these inventories to various criterion performances. In this paper relationships of scores on two of these inventories--the Background Activities Inventory and the Situational Confidence Inventory--to peer ratings, attrition during flight training, and accident information are presented.
