The belief that certain personality traits could result in potentially dangerous outcomes was first recognized in aviation, as ‘‘Arrogance got more pilots in trouble than faulty equipment1). Furthermore, it was even suggested that over half of the aviation disasters were related to poor pilot decision-making 2). This has resulted in pilots being trained to use mitigation techniques for specific attitudes, such as machismo, impulsiveness, anxiety, antiauthority, resignation, and invulnerability, to avoid disasters.
