Exploring Careers with a Typology. What We Have Learned and Some New Directions.
Holland, John L.
American Psychologist, v51 n4 p397-406 Apr 1996
Outlines J. L. Holland's (1985) typology of persons and environments, and summarizes the support for this theory in explaining stability and change in careers and work satisfaction. Recent research that strengthens the explanatory power of Holland's typology and links it to the Big Five personality factors is described. Speculations about using this theory in a changing economy are offered. (GR)
