Manifest Needs of Freshmen Who Later Use Psychological Services.
Sage, Ellis H.
This study seeks to identify in advance the personality traits of freshmen who will later seek counseling because of psychological discomfort. When clients were compared with nonclients (415 males, 257 females), psychiatric clients (10 males, 16 females) were higher in impulsivity, and lower in order and cognitive structure; and personal counseling males (16) were higher in autonomy and lower in affiliation. Vocational-educational clients were compared with nonclients with vocational-educational problems (24 males, 64 females). In the first comparison, male clients were higher in aggression and autonomy while female clients were higher in aggression and impulsivity; and in the second comparison, male clients were higher in achievement, endurance, order, and cognitive structure while female clients were again higher in aggression and impulsivity. When compared with psychiatric clients, counseling service males were higher in order and females higher in order and cognitive structure. (Author)
