Abstract The presence of two poles on the activity dimension, strict boring regulations and thrilling incidents, in every operational environment constitutes a major challenge for military leaders. Soldiers, who do well in a clear and secure environment, can be less effective in unpredictable and risky surroundings. Or taking the opposite, troops who do well in combat, can be undisciplined problem-makers in their regular service in the garrison. In this article an interactionistic approach is proposed to explore this phenomenon from the perspective of well-being of performing soldiers in their operational task environment.
