Self-Concept as a Moderator Variable between Current Occupation and Scores on the Strong Campbell Interest Inventory.
Wallace, Gaylen R.; And Others
This study examined the relationship between global self concept and the congruence between the individual's current occupation and the rating on the Strong Campbell Interest Inventory (SCII). Employed adults who sought career counseling completed the SCII and the Wallace Self Concept Scale. The subject's current occupation and SCII General Occupational Theme and Occupational Scale scores were classified as congruent/incongruent using the Zener-Schnuelle Index. The research results supported the hypotheses of D. E. Super and A. K. Korman indicating that there is a relationship between self concept and occupational choice which is congruent with self perceived characteristics. (DWH)
