The Personality Characteristics of Male Educable Mentally Retarded Students Successful and Unsuccessful at Employment.
Coonley, Patrick G.; Coonley, Carol Sue
The personality characteristics of 50 successfully employed and 50 unsuccessfully employed mildly retarded males (16-19 years old) were evaluated. Analyses of scores on the Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire, FORM E, indicated that the successfully employed Ss were more practical than imaginative, more tough-minded than tender-minded, and more shrewd than forthright. Findings had implications for counseling educable retarded workstudy students. (CL)
