The purpose of the present study was to assess the traits relevant to performance among restaurant workers. Consistent with past 16PF validation efforts, the analytic objectives were (a) to present a profile of 16PF mean scores and determine whether those means differed significantly from the general population, (b) to compare a new sample of cooks against a profile of means for restaurant cooks collected on an earlier occasion (Cattell et al., 1970), and (C) to assess the correlations between trait scores and ratings of work performance.
