Abstract:

A comprehensive review of personality literature as it relates to aircrew selection was conducted. The purpose of the study was to identify tests that warrant further research as potential prediction instruments. The advent of performance-based personality assessment and implications for future test development were examined. The majority of personality tests reviewed were invalid for pilot selection. Several tests appear to be both effective in pilot selection and psychometrically sound, and we recommend continued research of those. These recommended selection tests include the Defense Mechanism Test, the Personality Research Form, and the Strong Vocational Interest Blank.
