Professional Development and Personality in Religious Clergy.
Richmond, Lee J.
Recent studies indicate that achievement, deference and abasement affect career decision making. Conflicts occur between the need to achieve and the need to defer, and are exacerbated in persons who experience high abasement needs. When religious and clergy have conflicts between need to achieve in career areas and need to defer, the effect is frequently a generalized lethargy and malaise. Emphasis is placed on the psychological importance of individual self-directed, effective career decision making and action. Motivational techniques related to finding what one wants in life, and strength recognitional techniques relating to utilizing options and doing what one wants in life, are explored. Implications for religious and clergy are discussed. (Author)
