Abstract : Three types of questionnaires were distributed to naval officers commissioned from NROTC classes. One type asked for information on only the positive aspects of a naval career; the second type asked for information on only the negative aspects of a naval career; the third type asked for information on both the positive and negative aspects of a naval career. Each officer completed only one of the questionnaires. All questionnaires contained a rating scale for indicating general attitude towards a naval career. There was no difference between questionnaire types in the distribution of marks on the general attitude scale. It was concluded that responding to questions concerning positive or negative aspects of a job does not influence general attitude towards the job. (Author)
