Student-College Congruency as a Predictor of Satisfaction.
Nafziger, Dean H.; And Others
Hypotheses about person-environment congruency, consistency, and differentiation from Holland's theory of careers were tested. Subjects were 1,878 students from one college and one university who had been given the "Self-Directed Search" (SDS) before their freshman year followed by a satisfaction questionnaire at one or three years later. Two analyses were conducted. The first was a three-factor MANOVA with school, sex, and congruency level as the independent variables. The second was a four-factor MANOVA with school, sex, consistency, and differentiation as independent variables. Three college satisfaction measures were the dependent variables. Statistically significant main effects were found for school, sex, and congruency but not for consistency and differentiation. The results support Holland's congruency hypotheses but not the differentiation and consistency hypotheses. (Author)
