Abstract : This research continues the study by Leshko and Vosseteig (1975) along with further research conducted by Rowe, Rudeen, and Wenke (1976) in the use of situational stimuli as an aid in identifying and measuring executive capacity. Hypothesis testing was conducted that used capacity indicators which had been previously identified and isolated. Conclusions to the earlier studies claim that an individual's response to the questionnaire can be used to predict the potential success or failure of that individual in an executive role. Whereas prior research deals with executive within the private sector, the data base used in this study was comprised of top military decision makers (07 and above) from within the United States Army. The data from this study was compared with those responses from the previous studies. In addition, the data collected was used to present a profile of today's U.S. Army Generals. (Author)
