Abstract and Keywords

In attempts to improve soldier training, adaptation, and performance, military psychologists have traditionally focused on cognitive processes such as situation awareness and decision making. Recent developments in psychology, however, point to the interaction between cognitive and non-cognitive factors in influencing training, adaptation, and performance. This chapter describes contemporary research in cognitive and non-cognitive processes that combine to influence soldier performance. Cognitive processes examined include situation awareness and intuitive decision-making. Personality, character, and other non-cognitive factors now known to affect soldier training, adaptation, and performance are explored in depth. Implications for force selection, training, and sustainment are evaluated.

Keywords: Situation awareness, decision making, intuition, attention, character, personality, performance
