Abstract:

Attitudes toward interpersonal influence in the Navy of enlisted men classified as draft-induced volunteers and true volunteers were explored by administering questionnaires to 307 Navy recruits at examining and entrance stations at Los Angeles and Denver and 365 trainees during the final weeks of Navy basic training at San Diego. Recruits and trainees were classified according to their response to a question of whether the draft influenced their joining the Navy. Specific differences in perception of leadership climate, preferences for styles of interpersonal influence and attitudes toward leadership are discussed.
