Pulkkinen, Lea; Ronka, Anna
Developmental Psychology, v30 n2 p260-71 Mar 1994
Two components of life orientation emerged in study of 145 men and 142 women at age 26: Positive Orientation (PO), which included self-percepts of personal control over development; and Motivated Questioning (MQ), which consisted of identity exploration and dissatisfaction with present achievements. In comparison with MQ, PO was more strongly associated with personal well-being, broad goals, and social acceptance. (MDM)
