Abstract : The study was directed toward the development of personality tests to supplement the more scholastically oriented aptitude tests used in the selection of Naval Officers. The investigation was divided into two major phases. The first phase was concerned with an analysis of midshipmen ratings on 'aptitude-for-service,' at the U. S. Naval Academy. The second phase of the study involved the development and validation of several personality tests intended to predict these ratings. (Author)
