Social interaction and personality are things that are believed to affect the ability of an Indonesian Navy officer to understand the ways of thinking of others and equip them to make decisions that are fair and based on respect for humanity. This research was tested with quantitative research design, with the hope of helping the process of fostering effective Navy officers. The subject involved 398 Major Navy. Sampling using a simple random sampling technique. Measuring instruments used were Defining Issues Test (DIT), achievement motivation and TSCS to measure self-concept. All measuring instruments have gone through an adaptation process stage and validity test with the CFA test. The results show that there is a significant effect of achievement motivation on the moral reasoning of Navy officers (P-value 0.004 <0.05 and R.C. 2.851> 1.96). There is a significant negative self-concept influence on the achievement motivation of Navy officers (P-value 0.00 and C.R.-3.772). The weaker the self-concept of an officer the stronger the motivation for achievement. Conversely, the stronger the self-concept of an officer, the less he has the drive to achieve better performance. Regarding moral reasoning, self-concept does not affect.
