Personality and Occupational-Interest Correlates of Disadvantaged Students.
Soares, Louise M.; Soares, Anthony T.
Disadvantaged high school males indicated on the Minnesota Vocational Interest Inventory a preference for service-oriented jobs. Disadvantaged females tended toward office work and selling. On the Jr.-Sr. HSPQ form of the IPAT, both groups showed a pattern of personality which can be described as group-dependent, restrained, relatively unfrustrated, self-assured, feeling few obligations, somewhat detached yet self-assured, less oriented to intellectual pursuits, and a tendency toward emotional instability and low-ego strength. The disadvantaged females were significantly differentiated from the males in tough-mindedness and self-reliance. The correlation of these measures was .58, significant at the .01 level. (Author)
