Motivational and Personality Factors Related to Career Goals of Black College Women. Final Report.
Mednick, Martha T.
The major purpose of this study was to explore the innovativeness of the career goals of black college women as related to selected background, attitudinal, and motivational factors. The level of career aspirations of black college women was investigated. Level of aspiration was defined as the extent to which a career choice was nontraditional for women. All 413 subjects of this survey were paid volunteers. The level of aspiration was found to be unrelated to achievement related motivation. Innovators and traditionals were similar in their sex role attitudes; they planned to combine family and career goals in a two-role model. Innovative women perceived their careers in terms of self-fulfillment. Questionnaire and fantasy measures were used. Appendices include the method of procedure, list of major fields and occupational aspirations, the survey instrument and references. (Author/PG)
