Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n2 p134-44 Mar-Apr 1996
Two levels of education (high school or less, or training beyond high school) and nine content scales of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 were used to predict employment-related outcomes of 109 blind adults. Education, anger, cynicism, obsessiveness, and family problems were significant predictors of employability. Self-esteem, anxiety, depression, social discomfort, and Type A behavior were also analyzed. (DB)
