Abstract

This research examines the use of non-cognitive personality measures as supplements to traditional cognitive ability measure for predicting training performance. The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) significantly predicted an overall performance measure (R2 = .17) for Navy BE&E Students (N = 155). However, when applied as a supplemental predictor composite to the military cognitive measure (ASVAB), the resulting increase in R2 (.04) failed to attain significance, F(6, 144) = 2.17, p> .05). In further analyses, several HPI and ASVAB scales combined to significantly presict selected performance criteria. The ASVAB remained as the primary source of information. It is quite prossible that, for traditional academic training, cognitive ability measures provide the most valuable insight in terms of individual potential. Personality may have a more profound effect in cases of unconventional skill training or training for occupations of risk.
