Young, Jennifer; Bursik, Krisanne
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v43 n3-4 p241-254 Aug 2000
Using a sample of 59 college women (26 athletes and 33 non-athletes), examined whether women higher in identity achievement would describe more mature life plans, ones with greater complexity and stronger commitment to life goals. For athletes, identity achievement was positively associated with life plan commitment, while identity achievement and life plan complexity were significantly correlated for non-athletes. (EV)
