dc.description.abstractHistorically, psychological testing has been widely used in the United States military. As the U.S. entered World War I, the needs of the Department of Defense prompted the development and expanded utilization of early personality tests. The most common use of personality testing in the military has been to identify soldiers who are at most risk for functional failure when facing the unique stresses of warfare. Over time, psychological testing has become a frequent occurrence in the military and has a multitude of uses, one of which is focused on finding the best fit, candidates who are most likely to succeed through rigorous and lengthy training processes. The current study aims to identify possible predictors of a successful outcome of a United States Army course by focusing primarily on the substantive scales of the recently revised Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, the MMPI-2-RF (Restructured Form; Ben-Porath & Tellegen, 2008/2011). Archival data exist for approximately 1,700 soldiers who were accepted into this course. Data will be analyzed to examine which scales will be associated with success.en_US
