Abstract : One of the primary objectives of the personnel research program is to gain an understanding of the personal attributes which tend to make for proficiency in working with marine mammals. The psychological dimensions underlying job success are (1) human relations; (2) training skill/technique; (3) organization of work/planning; (4) knowledge/abilities; (5) conscientiousness; (6) flexibility/resourcefulness; (7) sensitivity/rapport; and (8) emotional stability/temperament. 214 behavioral items were rated by 14 experienced marine mammal trainers on a 16-step continuous scale on their relation to successful job performance.
