The Self Concepts Profiling Technique: A Procedure for the Exploration of Self Concept Systems. Information System for Vocational Decisions.
O'Mahoney, Terence J.
This report describes an instrument recently developed for profiling self concepts and provides some background through a discussion of the rationale and development of the procedure. The Self Concept Profiling Technique (SCPT) has both a projective and a paired comparisons phase through which are examined five occupational and occupationally-relevant self concepts: (1) self-as-a-person-at-work; (2) the ideal person for my job; (3) my ideal job; (4) ideal self; and (5) self-as-a-person-in-general. It is felt that this procedure permits vocation, with reference to specific occupations, to be empirically investigated. Initial results allow the conclusion that the SCPT has potential value in counseling and guidance, both in a diagnostic and an educative role, and may also be useful in educational and clinical contexts as well as in research.
