Abstract:

The Navy Antarctic volunteer sample differed from the Edwards male college normative sample on all of the EPPS scales and from Edwards male general adult sample on twelve of the fifteen EPPS scales. The civilian volunteer sample differed from Edwards general adult sample on eleven of the fifteen EPPS scales however, the mean scale scores profiles of the civilian group and Edwards college sample were highly correlated. The Navy and civilian volunteer groups differed on relatively few variables and the differences tended to be relatively small. Age and education appear to be correlated with a number of EPPS variables and should be examined in comparative studies. The intercorrelation matrix for Antarctic volunteers closely resembles that for Edwards normative sample. Psychologically meaningful clusters of EPPS scales with apparent high consistency over several populations were described.
