The assessment center is described as a method of personnel selection based on multiple personality assessment techniques. Through a review of literature, the reader is introduced to multiple assessment via a brief history of assessment center development and an overview of current assessment methods and applications. Next, the personality characteristics of personnel most likely to succeed in a cross-cultural environment are investigated, followed by a review of recent military research which is aimed at improving selection and training of personnel for cross-cultural assignments. The writer proposes a prototype assessment program for the selection of personnel to be assigned overseas. The proposed program is based on existing knowledge of the psychology of the overseas adjustment problem and reflects the writer's opinions generated in the conduct of research for this project
