Abstract : Inflated ratings continue to be the dominant observable defect in the use of OERs and APRs as decision tools in the Air Force. This study examines the problem of rating inflation and some of the possible sources of inflation. Findings indicate how experienced raters are not significantly different from non-raters in terms of their personalities and their superior/subordinate role style preferences, although there is a significant difference in the rating behavior of the two groups when they rate written descriptions of selected personality factors and superior/subordinate role styles.
