traits of Antarctic expeditioners:
This study examined personality traits of Indian Antarctic expeditioners
(n=8) with Cattell's
16PF (Form A). The result suggests that expeditioners are aloof, objective,
intelligent, independent, problem solver, optimistic, cheerful, self sufficient,
resource ful, careless of social rules and here little inhibition to environmental
threat. Characteristics of personality traits in the context of Antarctica

patterns of state anxiety of scientists during Antarctic expedition
Differential patterns of state anxiety of scientists during Antarctic
state anxiety scale was administered to the Indian scientists across
three different periods of Antarctic expedition, namely, onward, stay and
return journey from Antarctica. One way ANOVA with repeated measures (45
observations) shows that state anxiety score during onward
journey to Antarctica was significantly higher than that of other periods.

score correlations of state anxiety inventory across different months in
Item-total score correlations of state anxiety inventory across different
months in Antarctic Expedition The purpose of the study was to determine
extent of item-total-correlation coefficients of Spielberger's state anxiety
inventory across twelve months in Antarctic expedition. Data were collected
from 18 Antarctic expeditioners. Results show that eleven items out of
twenty were positively and significantly related with total score across
months. Result is explained in terms of the differences in connotations
by the item content.
