Personality Orientations and Vocational Choice in Community College Students.
Brawer, Florence B.
Data from a longitudinal study--the 3-D study--of freshmen at three California community colleges are presented. This study views freshmen on the basis of a construct called Functional Potential. Functional Potential is a hypothetical construct built on psychodynamic principles which describe the degree to which a person can tolerate ambiguity, delay gratification, exhibit adaptive flexibility, demonstrate goal directedness, relate to self and others, and have a clear sense of personal identity. Ss were 1876 freshmen tested during their first week in school and again at the end of their second semester. Information collected regarding the students included individual characteristics, demographic information, and data regarding attitudes, feelings, values, and goal directedness. Results are discussed. (CK)
