Abstract : Three groups of subjects (N=94) are tested by a semantic differential form and a sentence completion form. The first group consists of U.S. Naval officers (N=35). The other two groups comprise Thai officers (N=30) and Thai NCO's (N=29). The semantic differential form and sentence completion form are designed to evaluate the subjects' attitude toward work and authority; in conjunction with each other. Results indicate that subjects responses are comparable in the two vernaculars. The Thai groups appear to express more favorable attitude toward work and authority concepts than the U.S. group; the Thai NCO's more favorable than the Thai officers. (Author)
