Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to develop an instrument which could be used to supplement procedures for screening and selecting personnel for overseas assignment. A Biographical, Interest, Attitude Inventory BIAI was constructed and administered with the Strong Vocational Interest Blank SVIB to Navy personnel stationed in Japan. Results of concurrent validation analyses indicated that 1 selected items differentiated with high accuracy between successful and unsuccessful overseas adjustment, 2 attitude items were more useful in differentiating between successful and unsuccessful adjustment than the biographical and interest type items, and 3 items in the SVIB, as a whole, did not differentiate between successful and unsuccessful adjustment. The 38 BIAI items which differentiated with high accuracy between successful and unsuccessful adjusters in Japan were incorporated into a predictor instrument called the Cross-Cultural Interaction Inventory CCII.
