The Association between Self-Defeating Personality Characteristics, Career Indecision, and Vocational Identity.
Sweeney, Marie L.; Schill, Thomas R.
Journal of Career Assessment, v6 n1 p69-81 Win 1998
Of 81 men and 69 women studied, those with more self-defeating personality (SDP) characteristics were more career indecisive and had less vocational identity. Women with more SDP had significantly greater career choice anxiety than similar men. Depression contributed to indecision and lack of vocational identity for SDP men and to lack of self-knowledge for SDP women. (SK)
