Abstract : The report demonstrates that batteries combining three tests, an intelligence test, a personal inventory, and a 2-hand coordination test, relate significantly to (a) psychiatrists' judgments of 'psychological fitness' of entering Submarine School candidates, and (b) officers' judgments of experienced submarine men. Because of the significant relationship between test scores and psychiatrists' and officers' judgments, the test batteries may prove valuable as aids in eliminating 'psychologically unfit' individuals from entrance to the Submarine School.
