Abstract : Three studies explored the role perceptions of samples of Mainstream and Hispanic Navy recruits. Three different methods were used: role differentials, behavior differentials, and stimuli. The total pattern of results across studies suggested that Mainstream subjects experience both a push out of the family, and a pull toward the family, and a pull toward work roles, the total sum of these forces favoring work roles; Hispanic subjects experience essentially no push out of the family, a strong pull toward the family, and see work roles with considerable ambivalence. The implications of these findings for the Navy are discussed.
