Smart, John C.
Journal of College Student Development, v38 n1 p68-78 Jan-Feb 1997
Examines differential patterns of college students' self-perceived growth within the framework of a theory of vocational choice/personality. Findings support the theory's premise that distinctive subenvironments encourage, reinforce, and reward distinctive attitudinal and behavioral patterns. Implications of the theory's potential to promote students' learning and cognitive development are discussed. (RJM)
