Abstract : Samples of Hispanic and Mainstream male and female high school students answered an instrument that considered items that had previously distinguished Hispanic and Mainstream Navy recruits. The 'simpatia' cultural script and the high level of power distance previously found among Hispanic recruits were again identified in the high school samples. However, on certain variables the high school students differed from the Navy recruits. For example, the Hispanic students were higher in external control of reinforcement than the recruits. Discussion explores which aspects of previous findings are replicated, which may have to be modified, and what may these findings imply about the way the Navy selects Hispanics.
