CONGRUENCE OF SELF AND IDEAL-SELF AND OCCUPATIONAL CHOICES.
ANDERSON, THOMAS B.; OLSEN, LEROY C.
THIS STUDY WAS DESIGNED TO DETERMINE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CONGRUENCE OF SELF AND IDEAL-SELF UTILIZING A Q-SORT AND OCCUPATIONAL CHOICES MADE BY POTENTIAL 4-YEAR COLLEGE STUDENTS IN COMPARISON TO POTENTIAL JUNIOR COLLEGE TERMINAL STUDENTS. POTENTIAL 4-YEAR COLLEGE STUDENTS AND POTENTIAL JUNIOR COLLEGE TERMINAL STUDENTS WERE IDENTIFIED BY STANDARDIZED APTITUDE TESTS. OF THE SAMPLE (N 96), SIX OF THE 4-YEAR POTENTIAL COLLEGE STUDENTS MADE CHOICES IN THE INAPPROPRIATE OCCUPATIONAL AREA, WHILE 12 OF THE POTENTIAL JUNIOR COLLEGE TERMINAL STUDENTS MADE INAPPROPRIATE OCCUPATIONAL AREA CHOICES. SUBJECTS SHOWED A TENDENCY TO CHOOSE OCCUPATIONAL GOALS ABOVE THEIR APTITUDE AS OPPOSED TO SELECTING OCCUPATIONS BELOW THEIR APTITUDE LEVEL. THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY ARE INCONCLUSIVE AND DO NOT PROVIDE EVIDENCE AS TO WHETHER THE GREATER CONGRUENCE OF THE SUBJECT'S APPRAISED SELF AND IDEAL-SELF IS RELATED TO HIS ABILITY TO MAKE REALISTIC OCCUPATIONAL CHOICES. FURTHER RESEARCH IS INDICATED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "THE PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE JOURNAL," VOLUME 44, OCTOBER 1965. (AUTHOR/SF)
