Abstract : The Psychological Profile of Navy Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) Instructor Personnel is critical to the success of this type of training. Sixty-four SERE instructors were administered a clinical interview; the Shipley, MMPI-2, NEO PI-R, Rosenzweig P-F Study, Locke-Wallace Marital Inventory, and the Holmes-Rahe Life Change Index. The findings revealed that the SERE instructor personnel were a mature, bright, and psychologically healthy group of individuals. The extant Navy criteria for SERE instructor duty is appropriate and should be continued.
