The Relationship Between Personal Acceptance and Career Choice Contentment Among Graduate Students in Education.
Sturtz, Eric H.
A study was conducted to determine if a relationship exists between personal acceptance (positive self-image) and career choice contentment among Bowling Green State University graduate students. Two tests were adapted for use in assessing the variables. A randomly chosen sample of sixty graduate students were met on a one-to-one basis, where each student completed the two tests. The tests were scored in terms of total point accumulation and a product moment correlation was run on the collected data. The correlation coeficient was .49870 and was found to be significant at the .001 level. The results of this study indicate that there is a significant relationship between one's self-concept and the feeling of being well adjusted and contented with his/her career or projected career direction. Based on the results of this study, it was suggested that although self-concept may not receive the attention it deserves in terms of its effect on career contentment, it may indeed be the very root of contentmnent itself.
