The purpose of this study was to determine if personality variables, through the use of a testing medium, would differentiate military officer personnel of the Navy Line and Staff who have had recent combat experience in Vietnam. If the psychological and sociological characteristics of the military personality, who has performed in an optimum manner in his intended role could be identified, a more positive program of selection, training and organization, at the outset, would be possible. A secondary purpose of this study is to compare the combined military sample to a civilian sample, matched for general age, range, and socio-economic status for an evaluation of the military-civilian personality structure. The Edwards Personal Preference Schedule EPPS is used as the representative testing vehicle to arrive at derived conclusions.
