Abstract : Objective tests of aptitude and personality are useful predictors of submariner adjustment. The most serious limitation in all military selection programs is the unreliability and often irrelevance of adjustment criteria. Workers in selection are provided suggestions as to the classes of psychological and psychophysiological processes which are most and least predictive of individual differences in adjustment to the hazardous conditions existing during prolonged marine submergence.
