Journal of Counseling Psychology, v37 n4 p399-406 Oct 1990
Examined Gottfredson's postulation that individuals are more likely to sacrifice prestige than sex type preference when career compromise is needed in college students (n=246). Results indicated prestige more often used as preferred factor than sex type, but career compromise behavior was affected by gender and degree of contrast in prestige and sex type levels.
