The purpose of the present study was to determine whether attitudinal and personality variables discriminate between those subjects who entered the Navy with low draft lottery numbers (draft-motivated group) and those who entered with high draft lottery numbers (self-motivated group). There were 7936 sailors all of whom were given the Recruit Temperament Survey (RTS) during their first week of boot camp. The results indicated that the self-motivated enlistees had had more difficulty at home and in school, they were more optimistic about their stay in the Navy than the draft-motivated group. The draft-motivated group was more anxious and depressed than the self-motivated group. In terms of the psychiatric incidence of the two groups, the self-motivated group, when compared to the draft-motivated group, had twice the incidence rate for psychosis and neurosis and half the incidence rate for drug-related hospitalization. The results were discussed in terms of the effect that the all-volunteer force will have in psychiatric facilities in the U.S. Navy.
