Achievement in a Relational Context: Preferences and Influences in Female Adolescents.
Novi, Mary Jane; Meinster, Martha O.
Career Development Quarterly, v49 n1 p73-84 Sep 2000
Investigates female friends' influence on achievement-related choices using the Thematic Apperception Test. Study tests two hypotheses: (1) achievement-related stimuli will elicit stories with more unfavorable outcomes than will affiliation stimuli; (2) thematic representation of achievement will be more homogeneous in more highly cohesive peer groups. Significant results found for Hypotheses 1; thematic analysis of stories supported Hypothesis 2. (Author/JDM)
