Abstract:

The report summarizes one aspect of the behavioral research done on the 1963 American Mt. Everest Expedition, viz., the correlation between certain criterion variables field behavior and pre-expedition personality assessment results. Section II explores the nature of the criterion variables section III presents and discusses the assessment correlates. It appears that the responses of subjects on assessment techniques were valid samples of certain kinds of behavior which were later to be seen in the field, and which carried weight in the sociometric nominations used as criteria. The personological implications from all sources of data reported on show a high degree of congruence, which is encouraging with regard to the goal of developing techniques for predicting interpersonal performance in extreme environments.
