Abstract
A guiding principle of the work of this panel on multinational coalitions is an acknowledgement of the multitude of factors that can affect teamwork under such challenging conditions. Individual differences in cognitive processing is one such factor that the panel has cited as relevant to effective operations of teams in general, and multinational teams, more specifically. The current talk will provide an overview of individual difference factors that could be investigated to facilitate adaptability in teamwork within multinational coalitions. I begin by briefly discussing individual differences in general and then specify several constructs that may play a role in teamwork. The talk will also review the extant experimental literature. The talk will conclude with my suggestions for future research concerning individual differences that might be relevant to adaptability in coalition teamwork.
