Summary

This study is based on a comparison of data from two independent studies of technology utilization and dissemination methodology that sought to identify the behavior characteristics of "linkers" and "stabilizers" and their relative existence within different groups of technical personnel. Hypothesis for this study is that the distribution of the linker-stabilizer behavior characteristic has a general base in terms of technically trained personnel and is not unique to a select population. Comparison of responses to a survey questionnaire administered to a sample of 1,128 naval civil engineering officers and a similar questionnaire administered to a sample of 1,598 federal government civil engineers indicates that commonality of technical training is a more dominant factor than the decision to be a naval officer or a government employee. The appendix contains copies of both survey questionnaires, as well as a series of histograms and tables comparing questionnaire responses for each of the populations studied. (JG)
