Abstract:

A study compared the levels of goal integration in Navy and civilian samples and among strata of various demographic characteristics. Civilians were found to experience higher levels of goal integration than Navy personnel. Among Navy men, low levels of goal integration was characteristic of the young, the educated, those from high socio-economic level backgrounds, those who had critical skills, and those who were draft avoidant. Data were also analyzed to determine whether measures of socialization and accommodation can predict goal integration in the Navy. It is concluded that the Navy must work on developing goal integration if it is to be effective in recruiting and retaining personnel. Modified author abstract
