Abstract : It is hypothesized that an individual's performance is related to his perception of the support available to him from others. This support may be in two forms: (1) emotional support, or (2) being supplied with goods and services. The basic premise underlying the theoretical position is that when an individual feels he has support available to him from other people, he is better able to tolerate stress and his performance will be maintained at a high level. Therefore, the aspect of the interpersonal relationship focused on in this study is the feeling of an individual that he has others to call on should he need their support. In basic training one important source of support is from squadmates. This research is a study of the effects on performance of the relationships of recruits to their squadmates.
