Abstract : Participation in several sports and leisure activities was examined to determine the relationship of such variables with job attitudes (i.e., reenlistment intent and job satisfaction). Tennis, fishing, hard rock music, and country/western music were among those predictors that significantly correlated with job attitudes. Swimming, fishing and camping were also found to be the most popular sports whereas golf and tennis were the least popular. Some variation in the order of popularity was noted between first-term and career airmen. The activity predictors are discussed with reference to the prediction of job attitudes when a measure of job tenure (i.e., time in service) was held constant.
