Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the fundamental importance of individual differences among military personnel in their information-seeking and processing behavior when faced with critical decisions in a realistic task. The data reported in this paper were collected at sea in the mid 1960s. The analysis of this data base has provided an object lesson showing the importance of empirical data to decisionmaking research. (Author)
