The Relationships of Certain Personality and Demographic Variables to Success in Vocational Rehabilitation.
Gilbert, Dunham H.; Lester, James T.
The role of certain personality and intellectual factors in the vocational adjustment of a sample of 133 vocational rehabilitation clients with a variety of problems was investigated. All subjects were administered the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), the Rorschach, the Kuder Personal Preference Record, and the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS); in addition, selected demographic information was obtained. Several years later the sample was classified into three criterion groups: (1) rehabilitated (R); (2) nonrehabilitated due to physical considerations (NR-P); and (3) non-rehabilitated due to a "motivational" deficiency (NR-M). Among other findings, Group R members demonstrated relatively favorable psychological resources, both intellectual and emotional, had a slightly higher level of formal education, and were frequently unmarried. Results for the non-rehabilitated groups are included. A discussion of the value of the various testing measures for this client population concludes the paper. (Author/TL)
