A selection battery of seven personality traits and educational level (R.T Keller and W.E. Holland, 1979) has shown validity in predicting performance in a sample of American applied research and development professional employees. The present study examines the selection battery for validity in a sample of 51 Mexican applied research and development professional employees, and similar results are found. These results suggest that subcultural similarities of research and development goals, norms, tasks, and education may be more important than national cultural differences.
