Psychological Variables Related to Educational and Career Development in a Group of Disadvantaged Minority Women.
Hodes, Greg; Kukuk, Cris
This paper presents the results of a pilot study which explored the relationship between temperament, interest, and ability and the educational and vocational development of 44 disadvantaged black females. Data used in the study were obtained from the "Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire," the "Occupational Interest Inventory," and the "Employee Aptitude Survey." The variables considered included the following: (1) formal educational attainment; (2) participation in a career development program versus nonparticipation and higher versus lower rated participants; (3) underachievement in basic academic skills; (4) employment stability; and (5) exploitation of job leads. Significant simple correlations are reported and discussed, and multiple regression analysis is used to suggest hypotheses for future research. (Author/EB)
