The Congruence Myth: An Analysis of the Efficacy of the Person-Environment Fit Model.
Tinsley, Howard E. A.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v56 n2 p147-79 Apr 2000
A research review supports the validity of the person-environment fit (PEF) model in vocational psychology; however, sampling inadequacies have influenced results. One PEF example, Holland's hexagonal model, is unsupported due to lack of commensurate measurement; most hexagonal congruence indices are invalid. (Contains 110 references.) (SK)
