Vocational Hypothesis Testing in Career Decision-Making.
Blustein, David L.; Strohmer, Douglas C.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v31 n1 p45-62 Aug 1987
Examined vocational hypothesis testing by applying Snyder's hypothesis-testing research paradigm to a vocational task in two experiments. Subjects (N=106) were asked to evaluate the appropriateness of a specific occupation for themselves. Subjects tended to exhibit confirmatory hypothesis-testing strategies when relevant occupations were considered or disconfirmatory strategies when irrelevant occupations were considered. (Author/ABL)
