Combined quantitative and qualitative data to examine beliefs and strategies related to possible selves in a sample of 22 rural African American female adolescents and their mothers. Findings from Q-sort data indicate two distinct mother-daughter groups, with one group emphasizing the daughter's personal attributes and the other putting greatest weight on the daughter's future occupation and life circumstances.
