Lunneborg, Clifford E.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v20 n3 p255-75 Jun 1982
Evaluated bias in college-bound high school juniors' self-assessments of their employment qualifications. Found their self-descriptions, compared with standard measures, showed an uneven appreciation of preparation, ability claims that were not based on aptitude, and sex stereotyping. Results question use of brief self-assessments in career development. (Author/JAC)
