Abstract

Compared the effectiveness of M. Fishbein's (1967) and H. Triandis's (1977) models, the organizational commitment model of L. Porter et al, and job satisfaction in predicting US Army Guardsmen's reenlistment intentions and behaviors. Surveys were administered to 1,169 Guardsmen in 29 National Guard units. Several months later, 255 respondents made reenlistment decisions. Reenlistment intention was highly related to reenlistment (r = .70). Both reenlistment criteria were strongly predicted by the Fishbein and Triandis models (Rs in the .70s) but were moderately predicted by commitment, job satisfaction, and the alternative, descriptive version of Fishbein's model. Effects of exogenous variables on the reenlistment criteria were mediated by the Fishbein and Triandis models. Although the effects of the exogenous variables on reenlistment were mediated through intention to reenlist, the effects of the 2 models were not.
