An Investigation of Holland's Theory of Vocational Choice.
Folsom, Clyde H., Jr.
Students who had been administered the College Student Questionnaires, Part-1, were categorized into the six personality types proposed by Holland. Following this procedure, the personality types' mean scores on the seven scales of the College Student Questionnaires were compared in an effort to determine whether or not significant differences existed among the types on the CSQ scales. The results indicated that significant differences did exist among the types on all but the Family Social Status scale. Furthermore, with the exception of the Enterprising type, students within each personality category scored in ways which were consistent with Holland's descriptions of those types. These findings, though not conclusive, do indicate that Holland's descriptions of the six personality types are generally consistent with the ways in which classified students describe themselves on the CSQ scales.
