Is it accurate to say that you are pure and great at working alone? Since that won’t encourage you.
At the point when NASA is experiencing the troublesome and extensive procedure of choosing new space explorers for a Mars trip, they do to be sure considering. All things considered, when they send a group of people into the vacuum of the universe, they will have to think rapidly, be prepared to attempt new things, and function admirably with different space travelers.
Another investigation distributed in American Psychologist investigates NASA’s mental examinations of potential group individuals for long-haul space missions. A key thing they consider is the way well the team will have the capacity to a) proficiently participate amid crises and b) not make each other crazy amid the all the more calm segments of the mission.
Collaboration is critical here, and a comical inclination additionally makes a difference.
Curiously, while NASA likes social butterflies, they don’t need any space travelers to be excessively outgoing, much the same as they don’t need anyone who’s excessively withdrawn. Why they don’t need super-outgoing people is never unequivocally expressed. However, it may get back to that “not making each other crazy” factor.
As indicated by the investigation, the accompanying qualities are thought to be perfect, despite the fact that NASA holds their exact necessities under wraps due to how focused the pool of potential space explorers are:
“The proposed identity profile incorporates high enthusiastic security, tolerably high to great pleasantness, direct receptiveness to involvement with a scope of adequate scores, a scope of satisfactory principles scores that are over a decided least esteem, and scope of low to modestly high extraversion that maintains a strategic distance from high scores. So also extreme high or low qualities for any identity factor showed that the individual was not suited to be a space traveler.”
The examination additionally indicates a comical inclination as being critical, as having the capacity to break a joke can help decrease strain and along these lines help with compromise and the team’s assurance. Despite the fact that it must be a suitable amusingness because a space explorer who’s continually offending every other person in the group wouldn’t be excessively useful with any of the above.
Everything comes down to cooperation. From an entirely logical viewpoint, the group of a Mars mission should have the capacity to cooperate like gear-teeth in a machine, and a group that gets along well – with negligible individual spats among colleagues – is critical to managing issues when mission control is back on another planet.
