Abstract:

This research studied the relationships of the training unit environment, life experiences, generalized expectancies, and personality variables to attrition and performance among Marine Corps recruits. Generalized locus of control expectancies and the training unit environment were found to play especially important roles in the success or failure of recruits. The research showed the value of an interactional view of adaptation to stress. This view emphasizes the need to investigate jointly the effects of personal and environmental factors. Author
